Seasonal Riding Conditions

Obviously there is lots of talk of winter riding on the forum right now which has made me curious about other seasonal riding conditions. Winter here in Tennessee is mostly a rainy, muddy mess, but the cold temps are nothing compared to lots of you who live in the north. However, summer in the American South is a very hot and humid affair. Are there in negative effects to battery life or the wheel in general during hot weather conditions like there are for the cold?

High temperatures are even worst for battery, than a low ones. Look at tesla active cooling. Best temperatures to keep your li-ion chemistry in best condition is about 20'C.

So don`t leave your wheel on the sun espercially when is 40'C or more. Don`t leave it in the car in a hot sunny day. Keep it in the shade and don`t push the wheel to hard when is hot. Best is to monitor battery temperature, but this is overkill.
