Too Hot To Ride = Are You A Pvssy?

I've noticed a couple people on MH say that it was "too hot to ride" lately, making, I guess, some kind of distinction between "hot" and "too hot" relative to Texas weather.

What do you think? Is it too hot to ride? If so, why? What is that magic temperature? Is 99F hot while 100F is too hot?

Its always going to be "hot" in Texas but never "too hot" to ride. As long as you dont get stuck in traffic or traffic lights!!

A group of us were riding Wednesday while the official high in Houston was 104. It wasn't that bad and we were wearing gear. I'd certainly do it again

It's never too hot, for my type of riding. Sitting in traffic and cooking then yes.

While I personally don't have much issue with riding in the heat where comfort is concerned I have come upon another reason to avoid commuting on my bike in this weather. Over the past two weeks as temperatures rose I noticed more and more close calls with other vehicles on the road. Even though these people are sitting in little air-conditioned cocoons of happiness they seemed somehow angered by the heat just outside their windows. Drivers were more prone to swerve suddenly into my lane or pull out in front of me in that effort to get where they were going and out of the heat as soon as possible. Maybe I just had a bad couple of weeks, but the normal levels of vehicular insanity during the evening commute appear to have risen a few notches into " puckering" territory.

I don't mind hot, but when the west wind blows on 100 degree days, riding can feel like sitting in front of a hair dryer.
Anyone know the math for feels like temps?? I'd like to know the feels like temp for 100 degrees at 120 mph. I'd guess feels like low 80's.....
