No, we didn’t forget Fathers Day. If your dad’s not the cologne or “tie-shaped cake” type, you’re in luck. The weather looks good — and expectedly warm — so near perfect for a bike ride with the old man. Here’s Bicycle Sport’s short list of places to put on your list and take dad for a ride!
Hit the Trail
There are miles and miles of trail around these parts, and there really is something for every type of mountain bike rider. Plus, tucking into the trails makes the heat of summer much easier to bear. Not sure where to go? Check out Bicycle Sport’s short list of favorite mountain bike trails.
On the Road
If a road ride or organized group ride more your speed, or dad’s, check there’s always a pace and a place you can fit in. We point riders of all skills to Jeff Viscount’s Weekly Rides page. There you’ll find a calendar full of events and regularly scheduled rides,
Keep it Chill
There are nearly 40 miles of paved paths in the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Greenway system, so there’s probably something close by, no matter what your starting point. And if you’ve got kids in tow, the Greenway system is an easy choice.
