Riding a bicycle can be for recreation, fitness or as a form of transportation.  It can occur on roadways, hard paths, rail-trails or rugged trails on forested or mountainous land.  The type of bike you use will depend on the type of surface you will be riding, but a helmet is always a must!  Tag-along bikes and trailers are a possibility for young children to be part of their parent’s fun.  Families can ride together, couples can ride side- by-side, or an independent person can strike out on his/her own.  The point is to get outside, get sweaty and enjoy the scenery! Get Outdoors PA biking events vary and offer opportunities for all types of bike riding.
