Why Do You Ride a Bike?

Why Do You Ride?

Ever since taking the car-free challenge, I have been biking about town a lot more and love fitting in a little fitness by biking my girls to school. Cycling is also my favorite form of cardio — I see a big hill and I want to climb it on two wheels. Whether you're a biking newbie or a seasoned urban biking vet, there are plenty of reasons to ride. It's fun, it's good exercise, and it's an eco-friendly way to get around. So what's your reason?

Remember, we're giving away an Escape hybrid bike from Giant. It's one sweet ride!

I don't have a bike, so I hope I win that contest on Twitter! *hint hint* :)

My husband and I toured Stanley Park in Vancouver CA on bikes. We did the outer trail along the water and moved in on the dirt paths. It felt great to be on a bike again, outside, enjoying the sights and exploring the city that wouldn't have been able to see while driving. I loved it. Even pushing myself on some uphills felt exhilarating, the same feeling I get while in cycle class. Granted, my hubby's rear was sore the next day, mine wasn't, but it was a great 6 hr ride. I want to bike here at home to commute, exercise and it's better on my knees than running. Plus I won't trip over my feet :)

I basically ride for fun with my kids and dogs. It's exercise and bonding all in one!

I just recently started riding my bike to work twice a week since I don't have to be the company courrier anymore and I love it! It really wakes me up in the morning and my commute time is part of my exercise time which is great, killing two birds with one stone. I have also been filling up my tank a lot less because of it and saving money. It is really hot where I live though so riding 9 miles home in 105 degree heat isn't always pleasurable but once the weather cools down a bit I think I will start riding more.
