Based on today’s weather and all the commuting I have to do today, I thought this post was still relevant and a bit sad. This is over a month old and I still don’t have any really good suggestions to overcome the heat!!!!!
6 Minutes= 45 Minutes Sweating on the Train
As conditions slowly creep into the legitimate summer category, I am faced with an age old CarFree conundrum; how do I get around without being a sweaty mess? Anyone who has followed the CarFreeBrad experiment knows that I sweat…a lot! I just run a few degrees warmer than everyone else so I’m always on the verge of full on flop sweat no matter what the temperature. I have learned to deal with this characteristic over the years without too much trouble but my transition to bike-train commuter poses a significant new issue.
As the temperature creeps up past the sweating point, for me anything above 65, my 6 minute bike ride to the train serves to prime the pump. Upon taking my seat,
the floodgates open up and there is no stopping it for at least 30 minutes. I have no idea how to combat this and may have to get creative this summer to figure it out.
I must leave this post open ended because I have no solutions just yet. I just thank God that the commuter rail is air conditioned!
