The average temperature in Pakistan throughout the 9 to 5 workday remains between 40 and 44°C. Riding a bike in this weather may be excruciating, since the engine generates more heat while the searing air smacks against your body, giving you the sensation of pins prickling your ankles. As a result, we’ve provided you with some advice on how to lessen the heat’s severity during this current heat wave and keep your body safe from heat stroke.

Put a Wet Cloth Over Your Forehead

Use a towel, napkin, or any other cotton fabric that has a high capacity for water absorption.  The hot air within your head is cooled by a certain temperature, often 7°C, as air moves through the damp cloth covering it. By keeping your head cool, you can avoid heatstroke and keep your brain from overheating.

Increase Your Consumption of Cold Water

Try to sip as much cooled water as you can before you leave the house. Your body will use the water as a coolant to prevent overheating. You need to stay hydrated, so if cooled water isn’t available, just drink regular water. Ensure that you continue to consume water every 45 minutes.

Try Not to Get on a Bike From 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. 

If possible, stay inside and avoid riding a bike between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. The sun’s maximum intensity occurs during this period, raising the possibility of heatstroke.

Achieve Timely Bike Tuning 

The hotter the season, the quicker your bike’s engine oil will drain than in the winter. Engine oil is made to degrade during the hot season and lose its lubricating properties at a certain temperature.

Avoid Parking in Direct Sunshine 

Always Park your bike in a shaded area. After returning, the bike seat can be too hot for you.

Wear Gloves, A Helmet, And Long-sleeved Shirts. 

Keeping your body as shielded from sunlight as possible is the key goal. Wear gloves, headgear, and long-sleeved shirts.
