    Hottt!

    Everytime I ride 8 miles and over I sweat for hours after. Does this happen to anyone else?

    Me! And I find it even hard during the night too....but not for 8 miles as I am used to longer ones...but those that are longer and during very hot and sticky days...even the pool dipping does not help much when I'm out after for a while.

    I guess for weight loss it's a good thing as long as your hydrated. I rode 10 miles this morning with half of it being a slight uphill. I was still sweating for lunch lol.

    This time of year in NC - yup. At least an hour. I usually try to eat/cool down before I shower - otherwise, I keep sweating.

    Yep. Drinking crushed ice is a quick way to get your core temperature down low enough that there's a point to taking a shower. Of course if I haven't left myself time to cool down naturally, most likely I haven't left myself time to crush ice, either, so I still wind up drenched.

    I also wait a while before showering, usually also wait to cool down before changing into clean clothes and starting my drive home. I find that ice or a cold drink placed in my jersey pocket helps cool me down, as does ice or a cooling towel at the back of my neck.

    I do my rides and then promptly hop into the pool, nice way to cool down and the cold water shower/rinse on the pool deck before hopping in feels awesome!

    here in the Houston suburbs we are quite used to finding my sweat rings all over the garage floor every summer.
