Every summer we as a family unit get together if it is at all possible and create a memorable summer. I remember as a kid our father used to pack us in the car and we would all go to Adventure Land Amusement Park and we would hang out for the day. That made me and my brothers summer. I am sure we all have things that our family did that never left our minds after years past. But has anybody ever considered putting everyone on a bike and hanging out for the day? A great cycling plan will bring those kinds of memories.
A Museum Cycling Trip
One way to mix a cycling plan is to visit a Museum in your area. There are various types of museums to consider. There is a Museum of Science and Industry, Natural History, National Museum, State Museum and on and on. Most often these days they are a mixture of all the above which makes it even better. I tell you right now that it would be exciting to tell the family we are going to hop on the bikes and leisurely ride to the Museum.
The idea behind it all is to make pit stops to favorite places on the way.Your nice eatery in your area on the way would be perfect or ice cream stand. Stop and pick up small trinkets and so forth. There are most likely plenty of parks to stop in and picnic if you like to bring your own food. The idea is not to speed through it but rather enjoy the atmosphere while having this bike riding adventure.
For the large family ride, someone could devote their time to going to the Museum prior to the trip to set up a scavenger hunt for everyone to find articles, objects, city emblems and so forth for everyone to seek out. Whoever finds the most things on the list in a given time frame wins. The winner can receive gift cards or whatever your family fancies. Sounds fun doesn’t it? It is all about taking an idea and using bicycles to get there on.
Free Family Fun Ideas
Going to the Museum may not be free in all places we live. There could be some admission cost involved. However, there are parks, lakes to fish, botanical gardens in some areas of the city, annual parades and the list goes on and on. A lot of people already have great ideas in their minds for the family. But just try your idea with bicycling and it will put a nice twist on things. In some cases, it will have never been done.
My goal is for many people this summer to at least try the joys of bike riding and feel the pleasure that your family will achieve. If you don’t have any bikes, purchase some! If you have little ones, purchase some passenger trailers for your bike! On this website, there are some bikes for everyone if you consider purchasing for the summer. Just click on Ron’s Cycle Plus to view what is available to you.
If you decide you don’t want to purchase bikes, most cities have bike rental stands in their frequently visited areas all around the city. This tells you how popular bike riding has become as a way to make an outing pleasurable. So please feel free to jump right in and hit the pedals a little this summer and I promise you-you will love it.
I hope I was able to give someone ideas for this summer that will possibly be a different form of fun for the family. I want to thank all for visiting and don’t be a stranger.
