    Can someone please advise on what kind of tops would be good for riding in the summer? I can't wear anything strappy or too low cut for obvious reasons but I would really like something that does not make me sweat like a beast after twenty seconds of pedalling. Any ideas please?

    I always wear wife beaters. Regardless of temperature it a wife beater. You should see my funky tan lines after summer. Lol

    Why don't you get some unbleached cotton shirts, preferably of a light color? Make sure that they are light and breathable. Personally, I like red cotton shirts with a V-shape and very short sleeves. But during very hot days, I like to wear long sleeves and a hat with plenty of sun screen on my face, neck, hands and legs.
    At times, I also wear simple, long sleeved Indian shirts. They are very airy and comfortable. Also, you don't sweat too much in them.

    Thank you, I will certainly give them a try! I will have to get a hat too as sun has not been an issue here until about yesterday! I have to say that Inidian tops are very comfortable and breathable so I will try them too as it could help stop UV rays too, or at least slow them down!

    Had to look up what one of them was! I do wear them sometimes but I find them a bit tight and low, but a guys one might be better as it will be looser, higher and a bit more breathable I imagine.

    [SIZE=12pt]I mostly used the cotton clothes for summer, for riding in summer mostly I prefer cotton t-shirts with short sleeves and knee length shorts with sneakers. I think you definitely like this type of outfit, if possible try this once.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=11pt]When riding in the summer I too like to go with something lightweight. Cotton always is my go to for that particular purpose; however I do own some biker gear. I like Lycra spandex it’s easy to ride in too. I sweat regardless of what I have on, I could be at the gym not doing anything super strenuous and I’m sweating. They say sweating is a good thing. I usually go with the Lycra ladies tank top and shorts. [/SIZE]

    Linen is the best for staying cool, but silk is better for a sun shield. I would go with white or undyed (cream colored) linen for the coolest possible option.
