So here I am, living a 10 minute drive away from Wildwood and a few other world class trails, but my parents refuse to let me use the car to drive to them. They think it's stupid to drive somewhere just to run when you could run outside your front door.
If you're not familiar with Portland, these trails are located off of single lane roads that don't really have sidewalks and are narrow and a little dangerous, so I wouldn't feel comfortable running on these roads to access the trails.
The roads and bike paths by my house suck and have tons of stoplights so it's obnoxious to run on them. They're also over-crowded.
How can I convince my parental units to let me drive to the trails? I'm still a HS student, so I have limited freedom.
