Did you know that May is National Bike Month? Biking is a fun, low-impact activity that’s also a great cardiovascular exercise and perfect for all ages. Plus, as we’re all practicing social distancing, it’s a safe way to get outdoors for some healthy movement in the fresh air. To celebrate National Bike Month, Nature Bridges is featuring several of our favorite locations throughout the country with excellent biking trails and pathways. Check them out below and plan out your next ride!
