Chapel Hill homes for sale are among the prettiest you will see in North Carolina, and thanks toevents like the National Bike to Work Week, they can also serve as your ticket to a healthier and betterlifestyle. It’s no secret that millions of Americans are struggling to keep fit and stay healthy, but thanksto the highly active community in Chapel Hill, locals have different and exciting ways to shed off excesspounds and meet new friends at the same time.
The event will take place in May, but this early a number of locals have already hit the road on their bikesevery few days or so. Biking has regained popularity in recent times and if you are thinking about givingit a try, I highly suggest that you gear yourself up suitably with the proper outfit and footwear for safety’ssake. Arm yourself with a water bottle, too, because there’s always the risk of getting dehydrated whenbiking outdoors.
This year’s event will start off from Chapel Hill and continue to Carrboro. Last year’s event culminated,however, in our town and was quite a blast. The 2011 National Bike to Work Week had enough eventsto fill everyone’s calendar. It started off with a Bike and Bus Workshop for loading and unloading bikes inpublic stops and another workshop in which you could have your bikes inspected by professionals.
There was also a Bike Rodeo for kids 5 to 12 years of age while the penultimate event, the Cruiser &Family Ride Wallace Deck kicked off with a cruiser ride around the town and followed by a night filledwith food, laughter, and the best live music in Chapel Hill. Best of all, there had even been an areaspecifically designed for bike helmet decorating.
Finally, last year’s event ended with the Bike Ability Event for Youth and Adults with Special Needs. Givingback to people with special needs in our community was a fitting end for a very wonderful week. Therewere mascots to entertain the kids and even a delightful exhibit of adaptive bikes. A bike safety coursewas also provided.
Overall, the whole week made quite an unforgettable memory worthy of cherishing, and I’m pretty surethat 2012’s edition will be much the same – or even better. One thing’s for certain – if you have notconsidered checking out Chapel Hill homes for sale in the past, the Bike to Work Week gives you onemore reason to do so!
