Did you know that May is National Bike Month? I just found that out myself.
I miss riding a bike. When I was a child, and even well into my teens, I used to love to ride my bike. I would ride it everywhere. My friends and I would ride our bikes into town on a daily basis during summer vacation and on the weekends.
I haven’t rode a bike in about 30 years. My husband and I talk about getting bikes often. Our kids have bikes (although my daughter is in need of a new one). We often talk about ride bikes around a park called Rockland Lake. The trip around the lake is 3 miles. We usually walk it. We think it would be fun to ride bikes around the lake instead. There used to be a bike rental available there but it closed down due to the economy.
I wanted to buy my husband a bike this past Christmas but I think it’s something he’d need to pick out. There are so many different shapes and styles of bikes that it would be hard to pick the perfect one for him. I rather he do it himself.
Riding a bike is not only Earth friendly (compared to other modes of transportation) but it’s also a fabulous way to exercise. Not only that, it’s a fun thing to do as a family.
On May 9, 2012 there will be the first ever National Bike to School Day. That is an awesome idea! If it was possible I’d have my kids bike to school. My son gets bussed across town and my daughter’s bike is too small for her. If it was feasible I’d certainly encourage my children to do that.
