Although it's hot, I much enjoy having the breeze constantly caress me, attempting to wick the heat from my body as I'm rollin' rollin' rollin'.
Having a wide choice of transport options available to me for commuting, my choice to cycle in to work, was ratified by reading about the alternative experiences:
Commuters facing journeys on London's Tube network reportedly faced temperatures
of 47C (117F).
London bus drivers were threatened with the sack for wearing shorts, despite
on-board temperatures exceeding 50C
Birmingham train travel was compromised as:
Railway tracks buckled in the heat.
There's no getting away from it, whichever travel mode I choose it's gonna be hot, sticky & uncomfortable. But for me, cycling is the "least-worse" choice. Plus, it is a whole lot more interesting than being sweat-welded to a seat, watching the slow progress of a sweat bead trickle down the skin!
