Where do you find water that is 95 degrees. as of 7am West coast 9.24% of 119 people have ridden in 95 degree water. Lake Mead doesn't even get that warm. Where is this there bathtub?

In Central Fl it gets 92-93 in August.
Not a big refresher to jump in after mowing the grass etc.

Maumelle River in Arkansas can easily hit 90. It's sweet, the water just feels softer when it's that warm--unfortunately, it's not exactly refreshing...

I find if a lake is dirty, it heats up faster. And of course the more shallow the lake the hotter it can get. I was on a lake a couple summers ago that was 100 according to perfect pass which reads nearly three feet down. The lake was very dirty, small, and only about 12 feet deep. Oh, and it was 114 degrees that day. Needless to say, it sucked. It felt like a hot tub. The water was so soft that it was very hard to get any pop. We didn't stay long.

Up here in the Great White North (Alberta) the ice has just come off the lakes and the water is just over freezing, we don't see much over 70*F, even in the heat of mid summer....

I've ridden in 96 degree water in the Clermont chain in Florida. I've also had it get up to 92 in Lake Havasu. It was like 1pm in August, 122 degree air & no wind.

Texas rider here. We ride by a dam in 60 foot water. In August I love to dive down about 10-15 feet and stay as long as my lungs will allow, the water is cool and so damn refreshing down there. Now, the surface water is like a tepid bath, not so refreshing..

Have you guys ever done bucket diving? Its where you put a bucket on your head and have a friend stand on it, if you get 3-4 people doing it you can get pretty deep, a chain of bucket wearing people standing on each others heads...good times. Just don't stay under too long, the oxygen gets depleted pretty quick.

95 water mid august in baja ...not real refreshing, but air can be 120, so I guess it's all relative

I thought when people say that the water is soft when its warm they mean it doesn't sting as much as cold water when you fall, I didn't think the water actually got softer.

I wear a wetsuit top year-round. It just doesn't seem right to me when I hear that the water is 'too' hot in places.
