Put on the Brakes – Go For a Ride

by Chris Morales. 0 Comments

The weather is perfect, especially in the mornings and late afternoon to cruise around Frederick and the outlying country roads. Consider putting those gas guzzlers away and pulling out the good old bicycle.

You might just discover some of Frederick’s hidden gems. Baker Park is a popular destination as is Heritage Farm Park, but there are literally hundreds of parks and public outdoor spots that serve as destinations to take a break from a nice ride. The country roads of our pristine county are perfect ways to explore all that is on offer. The solitude and scenery can often lead to musings of times past and generations gone.

Don't forget to pack all the necessary items to have a safe and enjoyable ride. Helmets are a must, as are proper tools and equipment for changing flat tires. Water is always important as the heat rises, and a good blinker light, coupled with bright clothing will make motorist (those who missed a great opportunity for exercise) more aware of your presence on the road. Always remember to follow the rules of the road if you are riding in traffic!

Get Up, Get Out and Ride Frederick County!
