Well…here we are…sitting in an endless carpool line at school, feeling like taxi drivers as we shuttle our children to after school activities and wasting a lot of gas in the process!
Instead of grabbing your keys, get in the habit on grabbing your bike! If you switch to pedal power for just a few of your weekly errands you’ll easily sneak in some exercise to your daily routine.
Challenge yourself to find a few opportunities for you and your children to walk or ride bikes instead of driving, and then start to make it a habit! Riding bikes is budget friendly, earth friendly and figure friendly…so, what do you have to lose? Maybe a few pounds????
* Is the library just a mile away…ride your bike!
* Ride bikes or walk with your children to school…you’ll use less gas & get some exercise! No more excuses for not exercising!
* Bicycle errands are always fun…if you just need a few things at the grocery, strap on a backpack & ride your bike!
You get the idea!
I’ve made a conscious effort in the past year to ride my bike whenever possible, and I’ve cut down from 4 tanks of gas a month to just 2 tanks! WOW…that’s about $100 a month in savings not to mention all those calories burned! Ride your bike whenever possible this month…you just might like it!
