Are all of those on your list? Then we’ve got a four-in-one deal for you: Hop on your bike! A bike ride can save on gas, burn calories, improve cardiovascular strength and make you happy. And studies show that those who incorporate exercise into their stop-smoking plans are the ones more likely to succeed.
So what are you waiting for? Start out right on January 1st with a steady-paced (12-14 mph) ride through Interlaken, South Lake Union, Myrtle Edwards Park, Discovery Park and the Fisherman’s Terminal. This 20-ish-mile ride will start at Gas Works Park at 10:00 a.m. Your leaders, Les Weppler and Travis Coleman, will keep the group together and encourage you up the hills and help meet your goals.
But the help doesn’t end there. Cascade offers lots of resources to help you stick to those resolutions.
