Today, more and more people are deciding to get fit and do their part to improve the environment. For some in the Honolulu area, this means foregoing a car or SUV and opting instead to ride a bike, moped, or even walk to their destinations. What better way to experience Oahu, and get fit in the process?
Considering the beautiful weather in Hawaii, taking a scooter or riding a bike makes it possible to experience some of the most scenic locations in the world. The year-round mild climate makes it the perfect place to switch out your old form of transportation for something a bit more invigorating and refreshing!
Not only is riding a bike a healthier way to experience the beauty of the island, it’s often a faster way to get from point A to point B considering traffic congestion, which can be bad at times. Bicycling has become a popular trend across the nation, as more and more states are developing “sharing programs” such as the one New York City has involving 330 stations. In fact, Pacific Business News states that in 2015, a bike sharing program is coming to Honolulu. According to the article, about 1,700 bicycles will be held at 180 stations across the city to be used by both residents and tourists.
Whether you have your own bicycle or moped, or would rather walk and enjoy the magnificent beauty of our area, it is a smart move both for your own health, and the health of the environment for future generations.
As you work toward changing your lifestyle, you may have a used car, truck, or SUV you no longer want or need. Why let it set up and rust or break down, if you aren’t going to use it?
