For many of us, June is when we dust off the saddle and venture out on our bicycles. Whether that’s across town or into the river valley, it pays to do some mechanical checks and preparation first.
June is Bike Month, a time when summer weather beckons us to enjoy the simple freedom of riding a bicycle.
Edmontonians in the Rat Creek area are fortunate to live in a flat, compact neighbourhood well suited for cyclists. We have a variety of local shops and tree-lined streets that make short trips for errands a pleasure. Within a kilometre of my home, I’m blessed with multiple grocery stores, restaurants and parks, plus a recreation centre and library. Visiting these places by bicycle is quick and easy.
