Hit the Bike Trail

Posted May 17 2010 6:36am

bike thumb Hit the Bike Trail This week is the perfect time to hit the bike trail. Welcome to !

I have to admit that I walk more than I bike. It’s the nature lover in me. During the spring, my eyes are fixed on the ground as I look for new spring wildflowers—and morels this time of year.

Biking, however, has its place. The wind blowing through my hair is refreshing. I like the feeling of pushing myself by biking miles. It’s a great workout for your quads that is non-weight bearing. It burns almost an hour for a 160-pound person. It has a lot going for it.

I equate biking with running. It gives you an endorphin rush that is hard to resist. It challenges you. It can be a tough workout. For me, it is a nice change of pace cardio. With more and more trails being developed, there is no excuse not to celebrate and hit the bike trail.
