A few KM outside the city is a beautiful lake called Huay Tung Thao. Average temperature for Chiang Mai in January is 87 degrees fahrenheit (30 celsius)! Anytime is a good time to get on the bike, ride a short distance to the lake, jump in and cool off.
Last year we spent many hours just lounging beside the lake eating the myriad of tropical fruits we stuffed in our backpacks and saddle bags. Although this is the only "scheduled" meet up to the lake, I am sure it will not be our only trip! For those of you who do not wish to ride, if someone wants to take responsibility, they can rent a van for the day and others can chip in. Or we can pay a Songthaew to take us out and come back to pick us up.
Scheduling this meet up for 3 hours but if we are getting into the groove, and have the fruit, we might just stay until sunset!
