If you are in the Twin Cities over the 4th of July and want to ride, consider the Tour D’Amico bicycle ride. The Hiawatha Bicycling Club and D’Amico & Son’s Restaurants invites you to start your Independence Day celebration with this family friendly scenic bicycle tour through the south western suburbs.
As you get your bike ready for summer, before heading out on a group ride, it is a good idea to brush up on your local traffic laws. Bicycles are given the same rights and requirements as cars in most municipalities. This becomes even more important as you ride in a group.
Get your bike ready for some pedaling in Coon Rapids, MN. With miles of bike-friendly roads and paved trails there's plenty of parks, trails and summer events to visit including a 4th of July Celebration - to make a great bike adventure.
As a parent and tinkerer, one of the most fun activities I share with my boys is teaching them how things work. Now that my older son is riding more, and reviewing a bike for us, the time has come to teach him how a bike works. almost everybody gets the basics, but after 20 years working in shops, I want to give as much of my experience to him as possible. Take a look at my plan for teaching my son bicycle maintenance.
With summer in full swing, consider taking center stage by wearing clothing that makes you more visible to others while riding your bike or walking. Being noticed by others is the key to avoiding accidents. There are two forms, passive and active visibility to focus on. Things like reflectors and bright colors especially in patterns that make you stand out are key forms of passive visibility.
It will soon be summer and I have a big decision to make. Where should I go for my first out-of-town summer bike getaway? For me, a favorite is Albert Lea, with their beautiful bike route around Fountain Lake and the Blazing Star State Trail. I also learned there is a new ride called Rock n' Roll the Lakes coming in July.
