Take the Silver Comet Trail

Wow! I was excited to discover there's very nice bike path, called the Silver Comet Trail running from Smyrna, Georgia to the Alabama state line.  That's a distance of  61.5 miles.
That's pretty impressive to me. Why hadn't I heard of this before?  From there it connects with the 33 mile Chief Ladiga Trail.

For a vacation or weekend outing combining sight-seeing, exercise, fresh air, and fun, why not?

I used to have and old three speed Schwinn bicycle. When I was away to college and living in Davenport, Iowa, I had a morning routine of getting on my bike and tackling some pretty steep roads. That was good workout on the legs, arms, and heart. Then I'd change and get ready for morning classes.  Boy, I had lots of non-stop energy back in my school days.

Some cities have some very nice bike paths and make for great getting out to exercise for all ages.
Kids should have lots of adventures on a bicycle.  Once you graduate from training wheels, you're bound for many good times pumping those pedals which will always be good memories of childhood.

I haven't been on a bicycle in years. I should do this. Really.
