Where I lived as a kid the roads had this sort of problem. In days when it was 25+, the road would become very soft and the tar would sort of "climb" up the kerbs. When it had cooled down a bit you could literally rip pieces of the new road away from the kerb like it was some sort of blackened caramel to reveal the old road below it.oldbobcat said:When the tar oozes up from the asphalt and sticks to your tires, it's too hot.

My pale freckly Irish skin can only tolerate temperatures up to 25 celsius and that's pretty hot by Irish standards.DancingLady said:As we are heading into summer, hot weather is inevitable for most of us. How hot is too hot for you?
Obviously length of your ride will make a difference here. Do you commute in triple digits? Or find another mode of transportation. I'll be doing it, possibly pouring water over my hair and back to prevent overheating if necessary.
Until you come to an intersection and have to wait for traffic or a light to change, when it'll feel more like 115.ZXD22 said:Nothing really is too hot for me unless its like 110 degrees or so. Even then I would trying biking in the shade of trees and such as often as I can in order to get by it. It would be more chilling especially with your sweat and wind created by the speed at which you are going. Instead of 90 degrees it would feel more like 75
