Your body sweats to keep cool during any physical exercise, and the rate at which you lose fluid increases in hot weather. Drink more to compensate, and do it often. You might want to consider an electrolyte drink to replace the salts lost through sweat - it will also help you retain fluid better.

It's important to know the signs of heat stroke - if you feel at all dizzy, nauseous or weak, try and find shade and rest. These symptoms are ignored at your peril.

Finally, we can't stress the importance of sunscreen, and if you can find somewhere to ride that isn't constantly exposed to the sun, we'd recommend it.
