Keep things cool in the summer heat with INFINIT Strawberry Lemon Sorbet
Last July, my buddy and I set out for a light Saturday afternoon ride. Without regard for the 90-degree heat and cloudless sky, we clipped in to explore the winding trails of Cuyahoga Valley National Park (near my hometown in Northern Ohio) with no route in mind.
Before we knew it, we were 25 miles in with zero nutrition and questioning our judgment.
We drafted our route back to the car and set out for one more unreasonably grueling climb in the direct sun. With aching legs and flat-lined morale, we reached the top, as our eyes laid upon the most beautiful sight to be seen.
A popsicle stand.
It couldn’t be, we thought. But to our disbelief, it was. A roadside stand run by the honor system stood nobly before us. Ripping open our saddlebags for dollar bills, we unveiled the sanctuary of strawberry, lime, and raspberry fruit bars, oh my.
We took refuge in the shade of a nearby tree as we got to work. Our bodies and our minds were revitalized as we guzzled down what we could to muster the will to finish the ride. That sweet and cool little hunk of heaven made that ride worth the hurt.
Nothing makes a tough workout in the heat feel as satisfying as cooling down with a frozen treat.
