Did you know there are lots of Jacksonville Beach bike shops that are locally owned and operated? With our recreational options seeming to decrease by the day, here’s a little secret: this is a great opportunity to take the family on a bike ride! Actually, this might not be much of a secret, as more people than ever seem to be out riding these days.
Get Outside and Get Riding
Riding bikes ticks off a lot of necessary boxes right now: fresh air, sunshine, exercise. Although the economy has been suffering greatly, a local bike shop reported that it’s March numbers were up around 55% over last year. Many shops offer great service such as lifetime repair. So, if you haven’t checked out a local shop, now’s the time. Even if it’s been years, you know what they say… “It’s so easy, it’s like riding a bike!”
If you’re looking for a great spot to take the family for a ride, be sure to check out the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail. This 14.5 mile trail is flat and had great shade.
