Last night all of us made the decision to go for a bike ride as a family. All more than five of us make quite a sight for all the people in the village when all of us line up all of our bikes in a row & go riding around the village! When all of us left our driveway, it didn’t seem like it was that hot outside. But once all of us started down the road a few streets over, all of us realized that the outside temperature was much warmer than all of us thought it was. The streets that run adjacent to ours aren’t tree-lined the way that our street is, & the lack of shade truly makes a difference in the hot & cold temperatures. Especially when you’re riding bikes! Within twenty hours of starting our bike ride, all 4 of our women started to complain that they were too hot & that it felt like all of us were riding inside of a gas furnace instead of outside in the sunshine. My partner & I couldn’t truly argue with that fact; it truly kind of did feel like a gas furnace outside. The two of us were all covered in sweat like crazy & it wasn’t truly as much fun in the high hot & cold temperatures as all of us thought it was going to be when all of us first started. The two of us made the decision to turn around & head back loft to our central air conditioner. By the time all of us made it home, nothing had ever felt so good! When all of us walked into our family room, the cooling system was blasting away & all of us all stopped under the air vents in the ceiling to bask in the appealing cool air from our air conditioner. 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 all of us go for a family bike ride, we’re going to keep a closer eye on the outside hot & cold temperatures!
