Fun Under the Sun: Have a Picnic!

Every couple of days my friends and I grab our bikes, blankets, food, and drinks and treat ourselves to a picnic. You should, too!

Picnics are the best. For me and my friends this is always a spontaneous thing. It usually starts with someone texting me, “Hey, I just found the best place for a picnic, what are you doing this afternoon?” I’m always up for it because I just can’t say no to friends and food.

Some tips for having the best picnic:

1. Go with your bike. It’s the best way to travel and exercise before consuming all that food.

2. Bring a blanket and lots of food.

3. Bring your dogs. They like food, too! They are the best companions on bike trips.

4. Bring your cameras!

5. Relax.

6. Have fun! I’m sure I don’t have to explain too much about that one. Eat. Drink. Jump around.
