Think of bicycles as ride-able art that can just about save the world – every biker would relate to this, no matter what part of the world they’re in.
Every since I got my first plastic Schwinn bike (when I was 3), I’ve dreamt of riding down mountain (okay it might have taken another few years 🙂 ). The thrill of speeding down a trail or the break of sweat upon carrying your bicycle up a trail is second to none and the more you do it, the more addictive it gets. When you are out on a trail, you are truly in the nature’s lap and if you make it to one of those picturesque places, all your senses are in for a grand treat. The air you breathe, the scent of daffodils, music of leaves falling in your ears and a beautiful painting elaborating itself in front of you are just a few soulful desserts you get the blues for later while on a trail.
If you are looking for some good trails out there, you might have to come a little distance away from the city. The countryside would present you with some of the best trails ever and in order to get there, you need to pack properly and set out in your car. If you are in a group, you can even ride your bike on the open road instead of letting it rest on SUV mounted rack.
On the other hand it you are travelling all by yourself, make sure that you get your car serviced and take with you everything you would need to have the best of times while reaching your destination and on the trail –
- Make sure that the hitch bike rack on your car is properly mounted with no lose ends.
- Since you have a car with you, you can go a little heavy on the packing and take along a few extra things that you can leave in the car later on when you set out on your bike. Pack a quilt if you are going for more than a day and get some packaged food and a lot of liquids and fruits.
- Make sure that you also take along an extra tire with you, just in case if your bicycle has a bad day!
- Take clothes with you and add some extra cycling gear as well.
While biking can bring the joy that resides close to nature, driving on the highway in your car can be as thrilling as well. A little off-roading would not hurt as well! If you are looking forward to an adventure that involves your car and your bike, you’re journey is already packing a punch with it. Simply mount your bike on the hitch bike rack and hit the road to experience those little moments of heaven on Earth.
