Buying a hybrid bike for men or women is a great way to increase your traveling distance while riding. The electric boost from the motor means that you can travel outside of your comfort area and spice up the day’s journey by finding new destinations. However, how many beaches can your tour on your beach cruiser bike before they all start looking the same? Instead of just increasing your riding radius by a few extra miles, why don’t you expand your horizons and travel to one of these five overlooked biking destinations?
1. San Francisco
For those who own a men’s or women’s beach cruiser bike, you cannot go wrong by taking a trip to California, especially to the City by the Bay. Over the years, the city has invested over $100 million to establish more than 200 miles of bike lanes and cycling infrastructure. Also, the bike path known as The Wiggle provides views of the Golden Gate Park and the row houses of Alamo Square.
Canada is known for its vastness and natural beauty, and Montreal, its second-largest city, is known for being mostly flat and bike-friendly. In fact, this municipality has over 1,000 miles of bike paths for the curious explorer. Meaning that you can spend every day of your vacation riding somewhere new. However, if you want the most exceptional view of the skyline, there is no better route than along the Lachine Canal.
While many European cities offer bike paths, Berlin, Germany’s capital, prioritizes cyclists. With over 500 miles of bike paths and accommodating pedestrians and motorists, you will feel welcomed and entranced by the history and architecture of this lovely city. You can ride along the remnants of the Berlin Wall or explore one of the most extensive open-air galleries in the world, the East Side Gallery.
If you are looking for an exclusive and rare view of city life, then take a trip to the capital of Slovenia. Ljubljana has over 150 miles of bike lanes, and there are several areas where motorists are not allowed, only pedestrians, cyclists and some electric taxis. Also, if you do not own or want to travel with your bike, there are more than 20 bike rental stations in the city.
Not only is Tokyo the world’s largest metropolis, but it is also surprisingly inviting to bikers. Sidewalks are typically divided to accommodate both pedestrians and cyclists, which is unique to this location. Also, the vibrant nightlife, neon streets and tranquil gardens, make Tokyo one of the best cyclist destinations on the planet. Last, the 2020 Summer Olympics are being held at the New National Stadium, allowing for a sneak peek to any early travelers.
While riding is usually fun, using the same route day-in-and-day-out can lead to boredom and a lack of motivation. If you need to spice up your riding life, then consider taking a trip to one of the five locations above. Also, to get the most out of your adventure, consider buying a hybrid bike from your favorite shop.
