5 Ways to Keep Cool on Summertime Tours
The summer months in New York can get HOT! We’ve put together a few helpful tips to help you stay cool during your ride around the city:
- Protect your Skin and Eyes
With higher temperatures comes a higher UV-index. Be extra-diligent about applying sunscreen before your ride. In addition, wearing sunglasses not only protects your eyes from any airborne debris, but also from the sun’s glare.
- Dress Light
Choose clothing that’s white or light in color and is made from a lightweight or wicking material. A loose fit will capture more of the breeze. On the bottom, shorts, paired with light-weight sneakers or canvas shoes, will help you pedal in comfort.
- Water, Water, Water!
Think about how much you normally drink during the day and then add an extra 1-2 litres! Start sipping on your water supply a few hours before your tour, rather than taking in a lot of water all at once. Doing this will help you stay well hydrated–a huge factor in coping with the heat. We provide each guest with a full sport-style water bottle, as well as plenty of opportunities to stop and refill during your tour.
