Portland and Seattle recently made the list of best biking cities.

What about Tri-Cities? Sadly, not one made the list. Do you love biking as much as me? I'm an avid fan of cycling, and enjoy outdoor rides that aren't so challenging. While I do LOVE a challenging spin class every now and then, I much prefer a leisurely outdoor ride along a paved trail. And, if there's a river view, even better.

You'll have to let us know, which is your favorite? What do you love about biking? Is there a trail NOT on the list?

I've NEVER biked Badger or Candy Mountains and don't know that I could. I have cruised along the paved trail at Leslie Groves Park in Richland many times.

If you've never experienced Richland's Riverfront Trail, it's amazing. and, everyone can bike or walk it. It's 7 miles and paved. The trail connects Howard Amon Park, Leslie Groves Park, and Washington State University Tri-Cities.

When I lived in Pensacola, FL, I loved biking the endless miles of beautiful, serene beachfront. Huge motels were in development along the Gulf Coast. And, you could cool off by taking a dip in the cool ocean. I'm not too sure I could handle the humidity of Florida today. I love Washington. For more scenic trails in the PNW, go here.
