Hot Weather Hint
I discovered an interesting phenomena on Saturday. It was 112 here and I was headed to an outside event so I did something I never do when I ride... I wore shorts. I still wore my riding jacket and gloves, but I didn't think there would be anywhere to change so I made the 10 mile ride in shorts. Here's what I discovered.
As we all know the heat coming off the radiator can burn the hair off your legs. Initially I thought I'd spread my legs to catch as much air as possible to cool my legs. Bad idea, the heat was unberable. So I squeezed the tank. I was amazed to find that all the air and heat was deflected around my legs and it was a comfortable drive. I would have never guessed. With pants I have always endured the heat, now I know that the best riding position is squeezing the legs together and letting the air go around.
