Now this is some great news. I think of Grapevine as an excellent place to live if you are into fitness. There are lots of places to run, bike and swim, and lots of groups to collaborate with if you’re so inclined (including Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers, Mad Duck Cycling, and others). Now the city, which has always been on board and done a great job of supporting these activities, is adding new bike trails. We already have 22 miles of bike trails and the city is in the early stages of planning more, as well as possibly some other enhancements such as bike lanes on roads.
It’s not always possible to commute via bike, especially for long distances, but the more bike-friendly roads and trails we have, the more likely people are to dust off the two-wheeled vehicles and start using them instead of cars. It’s part of a more healthy lifestyle, more environmentally friendly, and fun as well – How can we lose?
