As the weather warms up, more and more people turn to outdoor activities to spend their free time. While walking is an excellent way to get from place to place, and cars expedite the process, choosing cycling or electric bikes reduces emissions and builds strength and stamina. Find seven ways to make biking a fun part of your summer this year.
Take Weekly Sunset Rides With Friends
Nothing is better than sharing experiences with friends. The natural beauty of sunsets is fantastic, and you can commemorate the event by snapping pics. Post a story or reel to share the sight with others who couldn’t make the journey. Making it a weekly event means that more friends will have the opportunity to experience the fun.
Accessorize Your Bike for an Outdoor Photo Shoot
Speaking of snapping pics, don’t rule out your bike as the star. Grab streamers and stickers and let the world know you’re doing your part to reduce global warming. There are plenty of things to see and record while riding, but you and your bike should be at the top of the list.
Choose Biking as Your Daily Workout
Outdoor exercise is far preferable to indoor options. When you’re in the great outdoors, you can move freely and breathe in the fresh air. No more stale, sweaty air with the sounds of huffing and puffing from the person next to you. When you choose a women’s electric bike as part of your daily workout, you can be sure that you will burn calories and enjoy the increase in personal space.
Cycle Through a Progressive Dinner
Many cities have a strip of restaurants and small shops that are pedestrian and bike-friendly. Find that spot in your own or a neighboring town and make plans to visit more than one restaurant on a night out. As you bike from place to place, you will only enjoy one dinner course at each stop.
A progressive dinner places you at a different restaurant for each meal course. You will burn some of the fine dining off, but you can maximize your eating experience by trying many restaurants at once.
Hit the Trails To Explore Nature
Check your local guidelines to learn more about cycling regulations first. Then, make sure your bike is equipped to go off-road. If not, consider renting an electric bike for teens to spend the afternoon on the trails exploring nature.
Try a Team Cycling Scavenger Hunt
Cycling scavenger hunts are fun ways to raise money for a cause or spend time with friends on a lazy afternoon. Teams of people join together and attempt to complete the hunt as fast as possible while accurately finding all the pieces requested.
Bike to a Picnic in the Park
If you’re thinking about a romantic summer date night, try biking to a waterfront and bringing picnic supplies. Bringing your goodies in a basket and renting a beach cruiser will ensure you get the privacy you want while you nosh the night away.
Biking is a versatile activity that anyone can enjoy. Spend some time this summer on a bicycle or electric bike with friends or flying solo to get in some exercise and see the city’s sights while the weather is warm.
