On the Hill: Bike, skateboard or pedi-cab around Vail

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Exploring different ways to get around Vail.

Conditions: With so many great events happening in Vail all summer, freeing yourself of a car and using alternative methods of transportation is not only practical and liberating, but fun as well. The true Vail Valley local is well versed in several modes of motorless transport, which do you prefer? If a romantic cruise in the carriage of a bicycle rickshaw or "pedicab" is your answer, then don't forget to bring some cash to tip the driver.

Tomorrow's weather: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 71. South wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.. — National Weather Service
