WUSS ! ! !
I'm pretty badass in person.
Where is the emoji for pat on the back? CAP LOL!
You remember that one time we had coffee at the DD and then rode figure 8's in the parking lot? That was a good morning.
If you won't ride in mid 90's in Southern California that cuts your riding days per year in half! I'll take 100f over 32f any day of the week. Even 110f is OK when you are moving. Getting in traffic is the bummer. If you can avoid that I don't see a problem. Wear a Camelback and hydrate as you go. Stop every hour. 90f is normal to me.
What bike did you get Joel? Its been too long, we need to ride again!
A UofA study two years ago linked riding in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees with high testosterone levels, thereby proving that you are less of a man by not riding in hot weather. In Cyberdos's case, he is less of a man simply by height. A similar study found that those who spend more time in front of their computer than on their bike develop chronic thin skin.
All of this of course is made up, except the part about you all being a bunch of wusses
Pussies-R-US. I mean what do you do during an epic ride to where ever,only it turns 105 degrees or more? Call Mom? Get a tow truck? Motorcycle riding is an outdoor sport.
I scrounge ice at gas stations or anywhere I can,keep the Camelbak filled up. Like most say,once its near 100 or over,the full vented gear is baking a person dry. I have a jacket that opens up for full vent,or zips shut mostly pretty quick. Olympia-GT-Air. Its ended up being the go-to jacket.
ASU's only notable contribution in this field is the effects of heat on the amount of clothing girls wear on campus. Preliminary data has been collected, but further research is needed.
I've got an honorary PHD in this field. There is a starbucks dead center in the downtown campus. We shall brace the tremendous 90+ degree heat and ride there for the collecting of this crucial data.
Cripes-O-Mighty,I was in downtown Chico yesterday,the college girls who have remained for summer.................its too dam hot for clothes obviously.
The good thing is that you tough guys will be out riding while verboten and I will pussy it up collecting data behind the glass of the air conditioned starbucks then dip into the pool (at the Y right next to starbucks) where these girls do laps to work on their physiques.
I know, it's a tough job but someone has to do it while you guys enjoy the trials.
Scholarly scientific research it tough work. Fortunately my wife is a biologist, so she will totally understand and support our efforts :)
I am really not looking forward to my international studies after giving this further thought
Beach Burqa Bingo?
All true,luckily I can wander down town on my Bicycle and be there in minutes,there's something about Chico in the Summer. Cut off ragged short shorts on co-eds,creek running right through town dammed up to make a huge cement swimming area,its old school nor-cal.
Pic is taken during a recent 440 mile day ride
an inmate and I did,overlooking the unknown coast off a 25 mile dirt section called Usal Road. Had all my layers on and was still chilled. BanhXeo is the inmate he cooks up long day rides and off we go.
Pretty soon you won't have to decide whether it's too hot to ride, the government will do it for you. http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/...nsiders-closing-hiking-trails-in-extreme-heat
There's a stupid motorist law, I don't see why there shouldn't be a stupid hiker law too. Because rescuing some idiot that thinks he's tough enough to go out in 110 degree heat should be paid by the idiot himself, not the tax payer.
Totally agree idiots should pay for being idiots,how will they otherwise learn? People head out in various sorts of vehicles around here in winter thinking "gee snow must be fun" .
That has to be their total thinking. Cars end up being drug out by some good Samaritan,or left for the winter in case of storms. These same folks tend to not have gas money on them,or jackets,or boots,or food. Just out for a good time. Humans as a species need more training.
