The Best Places to Retire for Biking and Bikers in 2015

Best Biking Communities
Whether you are close to retirement or years away from it, it’s important to start paying attention to the best this country has to offer in the way of retirement locations. There are so many great cities to choose from that you need to determine what activities are a priority for you and which priority is at the top of your list. One of the most important factors of deciding where to retire for many people is the accessibility of recreational activities you enjoy like biking, hiking, boating, or golfing.

For many active people, a retirement location that is biking friendly is high on their list of priorities. If this is you, remember that it’s important to research both the community and the surrounding areas to find out if they are biker friendly. For instance, you don’t want to choose a retirement location only to find out that they have zero bike lanes.

Additionally, you may wish to look into National Parks or other natural environments near where you want to retire to find out what types of biking activities you can enjoy in the great outdoors. For example, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers some great biking options for an active retiree, so finding a biking friendly community nearby could be the perfect location. Remember, though, that the perfect retirement location balances your ideal setting or activities with other high priority considerations like access to good health care and proximity to family and loved ones. Please use the guides below to aid you in finding the perfect location for your retirement.
