So, you’ve agreed to host Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner this year, but what you were not prepared for was out-of-town family wanting to stay with you for a few nights. If planning a holiday feast for 20 people (or more) wasn’t pressure enough, now you get to add entertaining to your to-do list. One thing to consider is that the daytime weather here in Florida is not all bad during the fall and winter months. In fact, the temperatures are typically nice enough to propose outdoor activities to your guests—like bicycle riding.
With that in mind, here are some reasons a bike rental and bicycle repair shop in Boca Raton, FL suggests looking into bicycle rentals to entertain visiting family this holiday season:
- After dinner bike ride: When you look out your front living room window on Thanksgiving evening, you’ll likely see hordes of people out for a post-dinner walk. It’s such a common sight to see that you wonder if it’s an attempt to walk off the biggest meal of the year or simply to enjoy each other’s company. This year, you and your family will not be walking, because you rented bicycles for everyone to go on an after dinner bike ride around the neighborhood.
- Take guests on a tour: Hosting out-of-town guests for the holidays doesn’t have to be hard. Instead of driving them around town in your car this year, jump on a set of rented bikes and pedal to your destination, or enjoy an afternoon filled with fresh air when you take your family and guests on a biking tour of your town. Contact a nearby bike rental and bicycle repair shop in Boca Raton, FL to see if they have the right number of bikes you will need.
- Work off a big meal: It’s probably true that the Thanksgiving meal will be the biggest one you’ll eat all year. Americans consume so many calories at Thanksgiving time that it makes complete sense to get in some exercise, and quickly. And between homemade sugar cookies, all sorts of pies and the roast beast, Christmas doesn’t go easy on your waistline either. Bicycle rentals in Boca Raton can help you work off a portion of those holiday foods and goodies.
- Keep kids busy: Remember the good old days when children ran home from school so they could go ride bikes with their friends? You can bring this back to your household over the holidays! Get your kids, grandchildren or nieces and nephews wrapped up in safety gear and send them outside to ride around the neighborhood. This gives you a chance to prepare or clean up without the distraction of loud, rambunctious little ones.
