May is upon us! May has some of the best weather of the year. April rains are gone and the heat and humidity of Summer is still about a month away. May has the perfect balance of weather.
Early mornings in May can still be crisp and cool, but not too cold. This makes for an ideal time for a run, mountain biking session or a hike. You may get hot and sweaty, but the cool morning temps make it bearable. In addition, the peaceful quiet time in the early morning can make your outdoor activities more meditative. It makes for the perfect start to the day. Studies show exercise in the morning has lasting benefits throughout the day and it even helps you sleep better at night.
Cycling and mountain biking make for great May activities as well. The temps never get too high, but still be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. In addition to a great workout, you'll be able to enjoy the scenery as the leaves return to the trees and the flowers bloom. This also provides some much needed shade! The Lehigh Valley has some great trails. Try biking at Hugh Moore Park, The Karl Stirner Arts Trail or the Nor-Bath Trail, to name a few.
Speaking of cycling, the Easton Twilight Criterium returns to downtown Easton on May 28th, 2022. There are categories for every level from children to pros! You can register and learn more here. It's also a fun event to watch. Make a day of it and enjoy all downtown Easton has to offer.
Camping is also a great activity in May. The cool nights are perfect for sitting around the fire and the moderate days make all of your daytime activities enjoyable. We carry pretty much everything you need to make your camping trip a success! We carry tents, cooking gear, and all kinds of neat camping gear and gadgets. Need a solar powered charger? We got'em! The right camping gear makes all the difference.
And we'll conclude with one of the best May activities. Chilling in a huge hammock in your backyard! We carry a wide variety of hammocks. There is something about being nestled in your hammock, rocking back and forth and watching the clouds go by or the trees swaying in the breeze!
Hope to see you soon, we can outfit you with what you need to embrace the beautiful month of May!
