Something about riding a bike brings us all back to the childhood days. You're free again and in the position to enjoy yourself while getting a healthy workout.

Stressin' out about being a mama, work, the man, the girls, or whatever it may be? See if a little biking workout doesn't solve the problem or at least give you the time away and peace of mind to find a solution.

Biking is, beside swimming, one of the best full-body workouts available. With emphasis on the toning of the legs and buttocks, biking also offers an excellent cardio workout.

Charge up the iPod and fill up the CamelBak with lots-o-water. Make sure you pack the sunscreen and wear comfy clothes. Bike riding is the full-blown workout experience, as you pedal your own body-weight for the length of the trail or route. Give it three tries and if you don't see a change in the thighs or bottom, let us know. Chances are, you will. And, you'll feel good about it.

There's a whole biking community in San Diego and North County. Join for fun and friendly rides or high endurance exercise rides. Don't be shy. Find the rides closest to you in Rancho Bernardo at bikely.com.
