Enjoy a Bike Ride

Enjoy a bike ride

Bike riding is a great way to get outside, have some exercise and enjoy the fresh air. Do you have a park or library or community center nearby that you use, maybe you could cycle there next time you go? Bike riding can also be a fun family activity; there are some great bike trails in and around Elkhart (see link below). Remember to dress properly, wear a helmet and ride safely.
