I take my daughter to daycare on the bike. 2.5 miles each way. I bike to school somedays. I definitely run errands and go on adventures with both my kids. I use the road, sidewalks and trails. It just depends on what is bet for where we are going.
You are right, we have excellent biking trails and beautiful scenery.
As long as the weather permits, I am challenging myself to use my bike for almost everything this summer.
I was biking to work this morning and was wondering some things:
-How many other Sparkers in Fort Collins bike to work? -How far do you go and how often? -Do you bike mostly on trails or roads? -Do you run errands on your bike?
We have such great trails and bike lanes here, I hope you all take advantage of them!
My answers: -I bike about 2 miles (one-way) to work. -I just started again and am going to do it all summer and through early fall, 5 days a week. -I try to keep to the trails, it seems to get me across town faster. -And my husband and I go on 'bike dates' on the weekend, so I guess that could be errands!
