    temperatures

    With the change over to decimals ,it has always been a problem for me to relate celcius temperatuires to the old fahrenheit

    I now know that 32deg celcius equals 90 deg fahrenheit and that 38c equals 100

    It is currently 36c on our back deck in the shade and thats hot enough not to ride

    I have this sneaking suspicion a wet t-shirt would work just as well for a lot less money... let us know how it goes!

    Hopefully you don't get as wet as with a wet tee shirt and will last a bit longer but time will tell Smile

    If you ever come off then instead of blood all over the road there will be a big puddle of water

    Secret --dont come off

    Re: temperatures

    ... 32 degrees, that's amazing. Are you saying that it was heated by the sun?

    When I undertook a road trip to Cooktown, some years back, part of the mix was an attempt to swim a good distance at every 50 metre pool along the way. And there were many. Some set in wonderful picturesque surroundings. The thing was that all the pools are set at 27 degrees, which amazed me. Even pools as far north as Cairns. North Queenslanders told me they struggle with water temperatures lower than that, having been conditioned.

    The sea temperature rarely gets above 23 degrees off the Sydney coast, even at peak season, and gets comfortable, for distance, from about 21 degrees.

    32C !!!

    Yes inground concrete pool approx 6.5 mx 4.5m with depths of 1m to 2 m and yes the thermometer in the water read 32deg c Its the hottest I have ever known it to be and that is with the sun and virtually no wind only

    I have swum in ocean lagoon waters in Fiji that were warmer and it was not enjoyable and the only refreshing part was standing up in the breeze which cooled you off

    For some reason I just remembered this post :)

     

    So, how did the vest work out for you?

    Re: temperatures

     Yep tried it6538 HYPERKEWL™ EVAPORATIVE COOLING VESTS - TRAFFIC SAFETY VEST (S/M) out the other day in + 40 degrees 10% humidity and keeped me cool good for my $17 50 . Soaked for around 3 minutes then rolled up to expel excess water . Used it for around 1 hour guess would have lasted another hour before needing soaking again . After getting home tee shirt was damp at the front and wet at the back also top of trousers wet . So for going on a ride works well but it going somewhere like shops or work then you are going to be damp/wet for a while . Maybe next time will ring out more to see if it cuts down on the dripping and wetness at the expense of drying out sooner

    People would think you have peed yourself -- I can think of no answer except to stay inside in an air conditioned environment
