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!
