    I can only speak for the Mid-Atlantic region but this summer has been crazy hot and just as humid. I was heading home from the beach yesterday on my F4i and my temp kept at a steady 212(radiator, thermostat, fan are all working fine). . . at 80mph and 90mph. . .of course there the ambient air temp was 98 with a heat index of 105. . . I can’t think of one day in the last 3 weeks that didn’t peak in the 90s and the humidity is always high too. .how has the summer been treating you in your region?

    It’s been hot here, in southern California, as well. It’s been 90’s and low 100’s on the coast for weeks now, with it being over 100 everyday inland. It was even up to 115 a week or so ago.

    Now we have fires to deal with and no water to fight them.

    Sucks, but typical.

    It happens every year at this time. People are stupid about their surroundings.

    I ride in all conditions. . . guess thats why I’ve put 13,000 miles on my F4i since I bought it in 2014. . . I have had to wash my helmets pads more often than usual. . lol

    Super hot and humid here too but it always is for us in the summer anyway. I don’t have an issue riding in hot weather AS LONG AS I’M MOVING, the riding is not the issue it’s the stops at red lights with a 220 degree fireball between my thighs that causes me to reconsider riding much in this heat.

    I agree. . I don’t use my bike for comuting so I usually only run into 3 or 4 lights over the course of a 4 or 5 hour ride. . I think I’m gonna start wearing a camelbak for now on though. . when I was finishing up my ride yesterday I started feeling woozy. . I wear an icon hooligan jersey and Joe rocket ballistic mesh riding pants so the air flows great as long as I am moving. . .

    Air flow is key.

    Sweat + air flow = A/C!
