Cycling or not in warm weather?
Summer has started again and for many it means more time to cycle! But cycling in warm weather entails a number of challenges. The chance of dehydration is real. Also a reduction in performance and sometimes, unfortunately, overheating. Two cyclists in France and one in the Netherlands recently died when the temperature reached around 40-45 degrees Celsius. Fortunately this does not happen often to riders, but athletes in general should take precautions in warm weather. Since here on the Costa Blanca we are used to a little bit of sun, high temperatures and humidity, we give some tips to get well prepared. And then decide: cycling or not in warm weather!
