Recently, my mom came to visit me from Washington. Our primary means of transportation during her stay was a BionX powered Xtracycle. I briefly considered renting a car, but I’m really glad I didn’t. I wanted to take a few moments to share our experience with you here.
First and foremost, we had FUN riding around together. Some of my fondest memories are of us riding along the American River Parkway, enjoying nature and each other’s company.
One of my goals for this trip was to give her a glimpse into my everyday life, and that includes riding a bike to get around. She also got an up close and personal look at Sacramento that would not have been possible in a car.
And to top it all off, I estimate we saved at least $200 on rental fees, insurance, and gas.
Who says you need a car to entertain out-of-town guests?
