I’m home visiting my family for the holidays and discovered that our township had expanded their bike path. I love it! It creates a safe environment for families to ride their bikes, walk their dogs, rollerblade, or run. In a day and age when sidewalks in neighborhoods are disappearing and its harder for kids to get outside and be active, its great to see that some communities are taking strides to create opportunities for families to be able to spend time outside.
It reminds me of the San Francisco peninsula which has a great bike path along the bay that I have spent many hours biking or running along while I have trained for a race!
I’d love to hear stories of other communities creating space for people to engage in exercise – please share!
