SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY THE SCENIC ROUTE
Riding faster will give you more air circulation but turning and driving at higher speeds will make you work harder to stay balanced and safe. That extra work turning adds up quickly in the Texas heat, and it isn’t easy to cool down in traffic. Keep it a cool, calm, slow ride, and enjoy the view!
TAKE REGULAR BREAKS
This tip is critical when taking long rides. Plan or find a safe space to stop, take off your helmet, and hydrate yourself if you intend on a long trip. If the heat is too intense, take a break every hour, and listen to your body if you need more breaks.
COVER YOUR SKIN
While some may think that wearing less clothing will help keep you cool in the heat, it is not true and may lead to a painful sunburn. Wearing clothing with breathable mesh fabric can help keep you cool and avoid sunburn, BUT there should never be mesh fabric on your shoulders, outer elbows, hips, butt, or knees. These areas need cover so they can protect you if you are knocked off your bike.
OPEN THOSE VENTS
Many bikes offer vents that concentrate airflow patterned similarly to where many different bike clothing offer ventilation for staying cool. The vents may not be the strongest, but they can make a significant difference on a hot day.
