Ah, Summer. There's so much to do when it's nice outside. Unfortunately, with the social bloom of the season, spending can increase. Nights out, BBQ's weekend getaways can all add up and break your budget.
My husband and I try to find inexpensive activities to do together. This summer, we've taken up bike riding. We had bikes and my parents gave us their old bike rack. Our only expense is the gas to get to the bike trails!
Saturday we hooked the bikes onto the car and drove to Cape Cod to ride the trail along the canal. There's a trail on each side of the canal; the Cape side ends at a marina & the mainland side ends at the beach. We meant to end at the beach but mistakenly took the wrong trail. Oh well, next time we'll get it right. Total ride: 13 miles. Here are some pictures from the day:
