    Heat acclimatization

    I've been cycling as my primary mode of transportation since October. As the winter set in, I found that I was able to cope with the cold temperatures with relative ease. Now that it's getting warmer, how should I prepare for the heat of summer? Should I bundle up during the milder weather so that I can train my body to dissipate heat more efficiently, or should I get more sun exposure to trigger the normal seasonal hormonal response? I've been dreading the onset of 90 days for a while.

    Eh, just stay properly hydrated and you'll be fine. Some people seem to tolerate heat better than others, but you'll be fine and adjust as you keep at it.

    I'm the opposite--winter bike commutes are tough but in summer I'll go 30-40 miles for fun.

    But I doubt body temp is hackable in the way you suggest (I wish it were since I've been stuck at 96F since I can remember).
