How to Stay Cool on your Bike in Extreme Heat
When you're a biker and you like to ride, how do you stay cool when it's 100? Here are some clothing tips.
- Sweating is the Body's way of keeping cool, the problem is though, after a while, your clothes will stink and become uncomfortable. Oxford Comfy head and neckwear is a brand that makes its gear with moisture-wicking properties that is lightweight to wear. Now you can keep cool without being drenched in sweat.
- For Jeans, the idea is circulation so I recommend Motorcycle DuPont Riding jeans. These Kevlar jeans provides the right amount of air to the body through the legs and have protectors for the hips and knees. These jeans are made with 14oz denim with Kevlar stitched in with cotton. Extra Kevlar is stitched in the hip and knees.
- For Vests, you have theErgodyne Chill Evaporative cooling vest. This thing is pretty sweet, you soak it in cold water for 2-5 minutes and then wear it like it's a normal vest. The Polymer fabric will remain hydrated for up to 4 hours.
In addition, it's always important to stay hydrated. Cold Beer might be tasty but like caffeine, it's a diuretic.
