Healthy Living: Riding Bikes

BikesMy boys got bikes for Christmas, and I couldn’t wait to get a bike as well so we could pedal around the neighborhood and local parks together.

I had grandiose visions of strapping the bikes to the back of the car and heading out for a day at the state park.

The boys will ride their bikes around the neighborhood every afternoon, weather permitting. They got little odometers for Valentine’s Day so they can tell how far they went, and it’s almost become a competition, right down to who rode one-tenth of a mile farther.

I love that because it gets them out and moving.

After a long winter, nothing feels better than stretching your legs.

Of course, I say that in theory. I did finally get my bike, and the first time I took it out for a spin, I could hardly keep up with my 10-year-old. However, riding bikes together is a great way to get healthier as a family, and I intend to not only keep up but to also outlast him someday soon.

Then, we’ll take that long ride in the state park.
