Dorothy, at the front desk over at LA Fitness, mentioned to me that she was going to start riding her bike to work. In chatting with her, I realized that she didn’t know that she would have bike path access almost the whole way from her home in Tempe to McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale. I printed out a section of the bike map to take in and share with her today, and thought it was worth reminding you where these excellent biking resources are on-line.
The Scottsdale bike path that runs along Hayden Road from North to South Scottsdale is wide and fast. It goes under and over main thoroughfares, with only a few intersections to cross. Rolling through golf courses and green belt, it’s a pretty ride, too. Now that our weather is cooling off, it’s a perfect time to get out, and even start thinking about riding your bike to work.
My mind wandered a bit this morning. I have a question for you? Is it possible to:
Show homes and buy real estate on a bike?
I’ve been reading about Realtors who show houses to their biking clients on their preferred mode of transportation. Interesting to consider. What do you think? I’d certainly be game to try!
Here are a few Realtors mixing real estate and biking around the U.S. and Canada:
- Realtors peddle real estate to bike-happy clients
- Specializing in homes for cyclists & alt commuters! – Portland, Oregon
Pedal to Properties – Boulder, Colorado
A lifestyle shift – riding a bike – Charlotte, North Carolina
Buy a Home on a Bike (Denver) – Denver, Colorado
(Realtors, if I missed you this list, just let me know and I’ll update.)
