What do some of you use to help combat the heat while riding? Need ideas for upcoming trip that looks like it's gonna be hot.
Take a large bandanna. Lay out diagonally. Fill with ice and make a wrap. Tie it around your neck. It will also take your breath away, but it will last longer.Wife and I traveled thousands of miles last two summers in 106 and 108 degree weather. If you stop and pour cold water over your head and body it is amazing how much better you feel. It will take your breath from you when you pour it on you but it also lowers your core body temp. Colder the better. Wet clothes will keep you cool for an hour or two. Repeat and you'll have no problems.
