Overheard at work, "But its a dry heat....."

Bitch, its 105 out! Go get in your SUV and drive home with the AC on! I'm off to rush hour on surface streets and an assload of stoplights. Basically 30 minutes of someone pointing a giant hair drier at my body. Dry heat my ass, its fucking hot!

I feel your pain. I'm sick of hearing that dry heat crap here in Phoenix too. We hit 110 today. Stop and go traffic on the way home is a bitch.

I'll ride in 20 degrees, but 110...how the F do you guys do it??? Obviously mesh..no? What about those caps and neck wraps that hold like a quart of water? I'd love to hear your tips, as the heat really bothers me.

I can ride in 95* in 95% humidity and not be hot, just sweaty. But if it's 45* or below... I can't hardly ride. I dunno what the hell's wrong with me.

I've said that a few times at work in the past couple weeks. Broke a couple of teenage boys in half because I made them weedwack in 95* heat. "But it's a dry heat" definitely came out of my mouth when I bitched at them. I was out in it too, little wooses.

Suprisingly little is needed unless you're going on a long trip. On my commute I just take off my tie and shirt and have a t-shirt under my mesh. My work pants are still on under my overpants. Maybe I'm just about as acclimated to the heat as you can be. I've never done the soaked clothing thing. Just drink water and have your helmet vents open.

As for FLA, whenever we bitch about our desert heat one of you swamp rats has to chime in. Make your own thread!

Yeah 105 or 110 is hot no matter what the humidity is. It doesn't get that hot here in Mobile, but when it's 95 the heat index is usually about 105. At least we get some rain every once in a while to cool things down. Oh one more thing.... you even sweat here at night while it's only 70 due to the damn humidity.

If it's over 105 I wear my Camelback. I find that as long as I have lots of water, I'm just fine. That and I wear a Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket. I guess it's a good thing I've never experienced humidity of any kind. Heaven knows Monsoon season never sees triple digit temps with 90% humidity.

I would take 100 in Phoenix over 100 in Florida any day. I recently did 3 weeks in the Phoenix area when it was in the 100 range.......I overheard people crying about the humidty being almost 20%!!! WTF, try 75% at 95 degree and then you know what sweating feels like. Yesterday it was 95 in Indiana and I was wishing I was back in Arizona where IT WAS A DRY HEAT.
