Well the little guy had not been on an actual long bike ride for a while. Though this weekend my friend Mr W. and I rode for 23 + miles?? It was in the middle of the day so it was 93 degrees +. We both enjoyed the ride in spite of the heat. There were some great sights along the way and even some hills of which there are not that many in Florida.
Along the many sights there were a lot of resorts, some really modern looking homes and some really antique quaint and very appealing older homes. One could see the Sky way bridge in the distance. The water was very pretty although I was not sure if all seven shades of blue were visible as paying attention to the road was important. Taking the time to enjoy nature is something we all need because life will pass you by. Time spent with great friends makes life valuable and worth living.
When outdoors drink lot’s of fluids. And if you are in the heat drinking water need not be chilled, cool is best. The body processes 32 ounces of water in one hour so a good rule of thumb is to drink at least 32 ounces prior to leaving for such a ride. Mr W has a great policy. That is to leave with 2 full bottles of the precious liquid.
