I WISH they had air conditioning. I would rather ride in 35-40 degree weather (I stop when it gets down to freezing) anyday then this stuff.
I ride all year long, but I think the months where I ride the fewest amount of days is Febuary , July and August.
I normally take the bike for every mundane task there is. Not in July and August. I hate riding in town, sitting at a traffic light, the heat emanating from all the cars and pavement....I feel like an egg in a frying pan.....
Friend has a mesh jacket and now a safari vest....works real well....when you are moving.
A cheap alternative is to just wear a wet sweatshirt. Drys out too quick tho, but it works. I also tried wearing my regular coat with a wet shirt. Only problem there was my arms did not get enough wind flow......but shirt stayed wetter longer. I thought I would sweat to death, but it was a little cooler.
