For more than a century, bicycling has become one of the best ways for anyone of any age to stay fit and healthy. In addition to being an enjoyable way to travel, it provides the means to get from one place to another while only involves pedal power. Riding a bicycle is also a great way to save money and to cut down on pollution or our overall global footprint.
