I like jogging along side my little girl as
she rides her bike but I can barely keep
with her when she really gets going. My
wife prefers walking to jogging so we're
mismatched in speed there as well. What
would be really nice is if we could all go
walking, running and riding together.
The idea is to have two or three paths
follow generally the same route but are
different lengths, the longer zig-zagging
across the shorter. Picture a dollar sign
that medical symbol with the snakes
coiled around the staff. The straight path
(staff) would be for the walkers, the
longer circuitous path (snake) for
and the longest path (uhhh, longer
could be for bikers.
You could even take mom or dad,
grandma or grandpa for a walk without
dying of boredom. If they're really slow,
you could walk the bike course to be
going the same speed as them on the
walking path. Have an appropriate
workout for your respective fitness levels
and still be able to chat while having a
stroll through the park.
You'd have to take a little care not to
bump into the other person when your
paths crossed but I think anybody with a
triple digit I.Q. would probably do okay.
Landscape architects could have a lot of
fun making these look nice as well.
Caduceus symbol to show general idea
Gives the general idea of how the paths of different lengths would lead to the same place. [doctorremulac3, Apr 12 2008]
