Our heat spell record has finally broken and some of our neighborhoods were lucky to get rain. The weather is getting back to a semi-normal summer here in the desert, but no matter what... it's still hot. ** Please be sure you hydrate and take in electrolytes while riding in the summer heat. ** If you can, get out early to avoid the hottest part of the day. ** Consider riding at night when the sun isn't beating down on you. It can still be hot at night, but without the direct sunlight on you, it makes it a little more comfortable to get a workout in. Don't forget to use a headlight and taillight, and wear clothing with reflective piping or striping to make you more visible. ** Go easy. If you're not used to this kind of heat, consider going easy and just for the recreational aspect. Heat stroke can creep up on you if you're not careful, so please learn to look for the signs of heat exhaustion and heat related illnesses.
