With Spring upon us there is no better time than now to get outdoors, enjoy the beautiful weather, and get active!
Biking in particular is good for your heart, muscles, immune system, mental health, coordination, waistline and lifespan.
Here in Palmdale, you can find plenty of spaces to exercise outdoors, including the Sierra Bike Trail which can be found between the very active Metrolink commuter rail tracks and Sierra Highway.
The trail is also landscaped, helping to provide some “green” relief to the desert surroundings. And, if you get fatigued, you’ll find several benches along the route. As the trail is located on the edge of the Mojave Desert, the sun can be hazardous, so be sure to bring and drink plenty of water on your excursion.
