    So you don't want to find yourself 20 minutes into your ride .......

    Hello everybody!

    I wanted to know what happens after a person gets sweated from/as a result of riding a bike in the cold weather and then cools down but not to the point of experiencing shivers. That's why I started to ask questions on the Internet and here is one of tchem.

    So you don't want to find yourself 20 minutes into your ride overheating.

    1. Does it mean that "you don't want to find that after 20 minutes of your ride you are a little sweated" or "you don't want to find yourself (to be) a little sweated after 20 minutes of your ride"?
    2. is it possible to say "So you don't want to find yourself overheating 20 minutes into your ride"?


    Thank you.

    The adjective is sweaty. It doesn't mean "overheated", which means "uncomfortably, and possibly dangerously, hot".

    Number 2 is correct.
