Dress with style! Shorts, quick drying cycle shirt, helmet, gloves, eye wear...a must.
You will need to drink 3-6 lt. each day depending on the weather, distance, road and your size, you will not see yourself sweat, it just valorizes- be careful..
Take an extra intake of salt in these conditions this can be done in many ways, from eating salt tablets to increasing the salt in your food...
Front legs of a biker do not need any sun cream, but watch the back as the afternoon sun has a habit of working its way through the sun block, cream up at regular intervals.
The desert is too hot for the bike activities after April so don't be late on arriving as the 47'c , will burn you out..slowly slowly catch the monkey!
