May is National Bike Month, a time for leisurely rides though the city and exploring the world in ways impossible from a car ride. Not only is it an excellent way to get your recommended 30 minutes of daily physical activity, but with rising gas prices your wallet may thank you for putting the car keys down during the week and taking a bike ride instead.
Cycling can be a solo or social activity. Check out some of Frisco’s bike trails with a friend or on your own.
