Summer heat feeling a little oppressive?  The cool thing to know is the term: 

"Heat Acclimatization" aka "Heat Acclimation"




Some cool facts about training in the heat:

•Everyone feels the effects of heat, even the strongest rider.
•The hotter the temperature the more it requires the body to adapt and the more your body will adapt:  increases in core temperature, heart rate, sweating.
•Most heat gains occur in 4 to 9 days and full acclimation in 2 to 3 weeks (with regular training).
•Heat training can be done outdoors or in a hot room.
•Your body learns to sweat more to keep you cool thus the need to hydrate more.
•Fitness level, health, and VO2 max are usually greater factors than age but of course this should be verified by your doctor.
•Like anything else, training to ride in the heat requires starting small and increasing gradually.
•"The brain boils first," i.e. heat exhaustion can cause confusion, dehydration, drop in oxygenation & necessary nutrients so trust what you think or feel.
