I just started to ride my bike to church one day a week while I only have one of the kids with me. The reason for doing it is so that we both can get some fresh air and I can get in some exercise in an otherwise busy day.
When I started out most my friends would ask me where I live and if I needed a ride. Though I appreciated their concern I thought it funny that they thought it was way to far to ride my bike to and from church even though it only took me 30 minutes one way.
An elderly friend of mine lives right by a park and she invited me and some other ladies to come and visit. She asked us to carpool if possible because she has limited parking at her condominium. I suggested that it would be easy to just park at the park and then walk to her place, about a 2 – 5 minute walk or so. She thought that would be too far for us as when we arrived at her place would have to walk 3 stairs up and down a long hallway.
I can see how that might be difficult for her to do, but for young women in their 20’s and 30’s that should not be a problem.
How far is too far?
I don’t think anything is far away as long as it doesn’t take me more than an hour to walk there or 30 minutes to ride my bike there.
What is to far for you?
