You can always add layers for the cold, up to a point. There is only so much you can take off for the heat.
Here on the frozen tundra of Maine, hot is 85F. If it gets much above that I don't ride. Luckily a nice summer day in Maine the brings 75 to 80F for the temps. On the down side, summer is short. In a similar thread it was pointed out that cold brings snow, ice, salt, sand, etc. This is a greater impediment to riding than just the cold.
So, I guess I'll take the cold, down to about 35.

Living in AZ, I welcome the cold. You'll never hear me complain about it. The heat here can just be unrelenting and as someone who is often in the garage, yard, gym, I can't just escape from it. You can always bundle up but there's not a lot you can do to cool down when you're outdoors.

I'd rather ride in the cold over the heat. Between 60 and 85 is my comfort zone, but I ride in about any temp. The coldest I've ridden in is 17 and the hottest was about 105. I don't ever want to have to do that again. If you wear the right gear, it's easy to stay warm. But once it gets over 100, there's not much you can do to cool down.

I like the cold best, not that central Tx gets so much of that.
