Private_Ale I was wearing a faux leather jacket in May. May in Southern California. 95 degrees. But it taught me that I needed to be prepared.
On the road, you’re gonna get heat and rain. I love riding in the rain. Invest in some “Frog Troggs”. Cycle gear has them cheap! They’re amazing, and I have no idea how they work. They’re paper thin and breathable yet keep the water out.
Also, get a full face helmet with an ECE certification, DOT only is trash. I recommend TORC helmets.
