SAFETY BRIEFING

Riding in hot, humid, and sunny conditions can take a toll on the body. 

Pre-hydrate before you start, hydrate during your stage, and re-hydrate once you reach your ending point.Electrolyte replacement is just as important as hydration. Gatorade, Power Aid drinks can help with that. Keeping your core body temperature as low as possible is also a vital component when being active in the heat. If you are feeling over heated or are getting hot you can pour cold water on your head and neck and to slow your pace are two great ways to help keep your body’s temperature under control. 

HEAT EXHAUSTION VS HEATSTROKE

 

Heat Exhaustion: 

Is usually accompanied by a fever no higher than 104 degrees Fahrenheit, excessive thirst, nausea, fainting, cool and clammy skin, weakness, muscle aches, heavy sweating, slow heartbeat and dizziness. Anyone who suspects that they have heat exhaustion should immediately rest and rehydrate. If symptoms do not improve, seek medical attention to prevent heatstroke.

 

Heatstroke also called Sunstroke: 

Is the most serious heat-related illness. This may develop following heat exhaustion if the condition of heat exhaustion is not treated. Heatstroke occurs when the body’s temperature rises to 104ºF or higher and the cooling system stops working. This potentially life-threatening condition is characterized by nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, fatigue, rapid heart rate, hot and dry skin, shortness of breath and decreased urination. When heat exhaustion is not addressed, heatstroke can follow. 

 

Heatstroke is the most severe heat-related illness and, without emergency treatment, it can lead to death. If you show signs of either of these conditions, immediately seek medical attention.
