Night rides are always pretty nice. Just to go cruise not a big group ride but maybe ride out for some dinner or chill on a patio somewhere.

in the summer , nights are pretty good.
I have my bike & a mustang vert , I love to cruise both this time of year.
Hot summer days are okay for a beach cruise or so , but not for being stuck in traffic.
As of now my best known criusing plan is going to Austin for the ROT Rally .
That is always a blast.

I ride in the cold, but, it's more as in longer trips.

In the summer I ride daily, but only for 5 miles at a time.

During the heat of the summer, it's too hot/humid even for night rides With that said, when I find a night that isn't too hot/humid, I do love taking a night ride down Memorial drive.

I commute year round. Usually only ride for pleasure if it's plus 50 and in full leathers. There's no such thing as too hot for me.

As a lifelong Houstonian I cherish my right to be a weather if it is less than 65 degrees out.
