Last night both of us opted to go for a bike ride as a family. All multiples of us make quite a sight for most people in the city when both of us line up all of our bikes in a row and go riding around the village! When both of us left our driveway, it didn’t seem like it was that tepid outside. But once both of us started down the road a few streets over, both of us realized that the outside temperature was much warmer than both of us thought it was. The streets that run adjacent to ours aren’t tree-lined the way that our street is, and the lack of shade really makes a difference in the temperatures. Especially when you’re riding bikes! Within twenty minutes of starting our bike ride, all four of our kids started to complain that they were too tepid and that it felt like both of us were riding inside of a heating system instead of outside in the sunshine. My partner and I couldn’t really argue with that fact; it entirely kind of did suppose like a heating system outside. The two of us were all perspiring like crazy and it wasn’t really as much fun in the high temperatures as both of us thought it was going to be when both of us first started. The two of us made the decision to turn around and head back house to our central a/c. By the time both of us made it home, nothing had ever felt so good! When both of us walked into our kitchen, the a/c was blasting away and both of us all stopped under the air vents in the ceiling to bask in the elegant cool air from our a/c. My partner even turned the temperature on our thermostat down even further so that the cooled air would keep blowing through the air vents longer. Next time both of us go for a family bike ride, we’re going to keep a closer eye on the outside temperatures!
