Biking requires a bit more of an investment than hiking. For those just starting out or revisiting their youthful days of biking, there are options to rent bikes or purchase them used. Either option will reduce your costs. If you are biking on the streets, make sure that you have all the proper equipment. You must wear a helmet. Donning bright apparel is another important safety idea.
Most areas have biking paths that you can ride. You may have to transport your bike to that location. However, these can be an easier place to start biking with paved pathways. For those a little more adventurous, consider mountain biking. There are paths in many parks that you can challenge yourself on riding the hills. Cycling around your neighborhood can be a relaxing bike ride and a perfect way to reconnect with neighbors.
Regardless of the path you choose, consider adding biking to your list of outdoor activities for the spring.
