As our Summer is coming to an end I've been looking back at it and realized we were forced to become a more active family. Why, you ask? We've been preparing for our big move to Rota Spain, we sold our GIANT SUV at the beginning of July. We live in such a small community here in Dahlgren Virginia, that we've been able to bike and walk everywhere here on base, to the clinic, our commissary, our movie theater and regular places like just going for an actual ride or walk.
A few weeks ago while family was visiting we actually drove into DC with our bikes, rented a bike or two for our visiting family and biked all over the place. If you haven't done so yet I highly recommend it. We used Bike and Roll near the Reagan Center, the bikes run $35 for the day, 9am-9pm in the Summer and if you happen to be military you get 20% off (about $10 off that is), compared to the bike rentals on the street at a kiosk you are paying about 1/6th of the price, in addition to bikes they have strollers and wheelchairs as well.
