Biking to a Place Inside and Out / 03

Taking a break at FATS (Forks Area Trail System) in South Carolina

Biking in the big city is quite different from biking in rural areas such as here in South Carolina. In the city, it’s about taking your time and blending in with your surroundings i.e. talking with strangers (girls mostly), stepping in and out of stores (got to have a lock), cruising downtown (looking cool), and going to the park for that “getting away from it all feeling”. Philadelphia has one of the largest city parks in the nation called Fairmount Park.  It embodies four sections of the city, with beautiful trails and drives (most notably the East and West River Drives).  Rivers, creeks, long stretches of trails and scenic vistas can be found only by biking, horseback riding or hiking.
