Bicycling
Recently, I've been taking the time to go on cross country bicycle rides. I'd encourage everyone to see the sights from ground level, every once in a while. In spite of the aerial abilities of the typical SL avatar, most builders still design their builds for surface-level viewing. As such, you miss quite a bit by flying overhead.

I've been using Tripper Tapioca's mountain bike for my outings. The built in animations allow me to move at running speed (CTRL-R to toggle running on and off) without the normal spazzy movements of SL's default run. I've found that running speed is a good compromise for sight seeing: fast enough to avoid boredom, slow enough to allow the scenery to rez. I've found that it's handy to add a gravity reducing llSetForce attachment to my riding gear, however. This smooths out some of the jerkiness when running/riding up steps, and increases jumping distances.
