|It would seem that everyone would love to ride on a bright sunny day with moderate temps but are there any other weather conditions that you really like to ride in?Cold days.rain,snow ,cloudy, or whatever.
I personaaly love the hot and humid days with cloudy skies.

|In a perfect world, or climate, every riding day for me would be in the 60s or 70s and sunny. But, given that I live in Maryland, I have to deal with both extremes of the temperature scale. I have come to realize that I can ride in almost any temperature as long as it is sunny. Although recent rides in the 20s have pushed me, I will take 25 degrees and sunny over 45 degrees and cloudy. I even can deal with the wind if the sun is out. Over the past few winters I really have come to appreciate riding in the 40s and 50s -- the roads are not crowded and I can be comfortable without too many layers of clothes.|
|Make it windless; I'll deal with the rest.||retro|

|We have major (30+) afternoon winds around here through most of the spring and early summer, and it's really a pain. In winter it's cool but usually not windy, and I'll take that anytime. I did a longish ride yesterday in sun, no wind and sub-40 temperatures, and it was great. But I'd rather ride in rain or snow than a high wind.|
|I'll stick with perfect, thank you.||DougSloan|

|80 degrees, sunny, dry, very light breeze (throw in some nice pine scented air in the mountains). If it must vary from that, hotter the better.

|I was just out of my office for a walk (need fresh air and sunlight up here) and seriously thought about going for a ride after work. It is -10C right now. A good temperature, because the snow won't melt, the roads are very dry.
So, for me, dry is better. Even 100% humidity is tough.
|Yes, I like weather-any weather is fine. nm||MB1|

|I loved it hot. The hotter the better. I loved watching the other guys wilt in the heat.|| |
