The Best Summer Sports

1 Jul

This is a guest post from Brad Richardson.

When it comes to deciding how to spend your time this summer, consider the range of options that are available to you besides just lazing on the beach. Although, many people have made beach going a sport based on the frequency and rigor in which they engage in lying on a beach towel for hours at a time. We’re talking about real sports here: activities that will get your blood pumping and get you excited for the heat and the adventure of it all. While these sports are boarding on the extreme, anyone can give them a whirl. Here are three awesome sports you can try this summer anywhere in the world. Get your gear and get your route mapped out and you’re off to the races!

Rock Climbing

There’s nothing more exciting than scaling a rock face with some friends. There are thousands of places all over the world where you can get your climbing shoes on and get yourself into some tight spaces. Climb Fit offers a huge selection of climbing shoes so you can get the proper footwear for your adventures. It is imperative that you have the proper gear and knowledgeable climbing mates when you head out to tackle a soaring rock face. Rock climbing is challenging and rewarding, and those who love it can’t get enough of it. Some of the best places to rock climb are Boulder Canyon, Colorado, USA; Yosemite National Park, California, USA; Wye Creek in New Zealand; and Frankenjura, Germany.


It’s not just walking, you know. Hiking requires strength, endurance, and a lot of planning, especially if you are heading out for several days at a time. Some of the most famous hiking spots in the world are the Inca Trail in Peru, the Everest Base Camp Trek, the Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim hike, the Pacific Crest Trail in the United States and the Tour de Mont Blanc in France and Switzerland. Hiking can take months to plan so start your planning today: you’ll need to make sure you have the proper gear and have a trail route mapped out ahead of time. If you are new to hiking, it’s best to travel with at least one other person for safety reasons. Whether you like to hike alone or with a large group, it’s a great way to spend some time outdoors this summer.


Long distance cycling has been made famous by the Tour de France and everyone dreams of hopping on their bikes and going across the country to achieve a goal. In America, the Ride Across America is one of the longest and toughest cycling routes in the world. Cyclists cross the country by traveling over 3000 miles, through 12 states from California to Maryland. These men and women are extreme! There are several stories of novice cyclists who attempted the Ride Across America and completed it. It’s a great way to challenge yourself and get outside your comfort zone on the road this summer.
