Cycling is a very common form of exercise and while not only can it be an enjoyable experience, it can also be quite therapeutic. Cycling gives you a cardiovascular workout, meaning it will increase your heart rate and make you sweat very easily. Some of the best places to cycle for vacations are in California. California is home to many different types of environments, including beaches, deserts, as well as dense forests. One of the best places to cycle for those who aren’t very experienced with cycling is at the beach. The beach usually features long boardwalks and sidewalks to ride along next to the ocean. Many people usually choose to ride here because it is very calm and serene during the morning. The sunrise, the ocean breeze, and the waves crashing only enhance your cycling experience as you ride next to the seaside. However the beach can often be quite crowded on the sidewalks and boardwalks if you do not arrive there early, making it difficult to cycle and to get a good workout. This is why you should arrive early in the morning, there will be other cyclists however they all respect each other and stay far apart from each other.
Other great places to cycle for vacations are in the dense forests commonly found in the Midwest regions. Often times these forests have rough paths that require mountain bicycles, however cycling through a forest at high speeds can be an exhilarating experience. However you should be safe on these trails, as often times people could be walking along them or your bicycle could hit a rough spot and easily tip over and cause serious damage to your body. It is wise to notify the people you are traveling with before you go cycling in the woods so they are able to locate you in case you haven’t returned for a while. Another great place to cycle is in the desert, as no one is around and it can be a quiet serene experience. Also, there is a lot of wildlife that you may encounter while out in the desert such as tortoises and desert foxes. However some of this wildlife can prove to be dangerous such as coyotes, and in this case you should always be cautious in the desert. There are many places to cycle while on vacations, however California is considered one of the best.
