    I rode to work once, im barely awake at 6 when I leave for work in my car.
    add in winter, rain, low temps, stupid raging drivers, lack of a place to
    put my bike, gridlock and drivers constantly changing lanes without
    looking. yeah its kinda nuts for me to do that.

    There are many other forms of transport, and just because someone buys a
    bike, it doesn’t mean that they will use it.

    “Think a little about it and you will get the answer.” Hmm. Interesting.
    And what question did I ask?

    I believe that ex. training trips doesn’t count. I think urban trips are
    about getting from point A to point B like from house to work or the way
    back.

    The US buys 3 times as many new bikes as cars, but only 1% of urban trips
    are taken on bikes. There’s something absurdly ridiculous about that
    discrepancy.

    Thank you for your explanation. At last I can see what was already obvious

    why does cycling not reduce mens chances of developing breast cancer if it
    does for women? (yes, men can get breast cancer)

    Yes. And it said that only 5 millions cars are sold. I think the realy
    number is around 30 Million new cars. They just get the facts wrong

    BMX track, MTB trails, racing ‘cross, racing road, learning to ride in the
    driveway, training for a tri, losing weight on a rails-to-trails path,
    screwing around on a trick bike, etc. None of these are “urban trips,” but
    are about cycling itself. I don’t find these activities “absurdly
    ridiculous.”

    Your cardiovascular system, your legs and your core (abs and back). It can also positively impact your body weight. Since its low impact, you have less stress on joints and tendons.

    On the downside, depending on your riding routes and style, it can be dangerous, it is low impact so it does nothing to stave off osteoporosis, and it can be addictive ;^)

    Just about everything. The environment and yoiur health. Not burning any fossil fuels has a good effect on the environment. Using your body to ride the bike has a great effect on your cardiovascular system. Cycling is low impact, but try riding up some hills and you will find that it can help build some strong leg muscles. It also helps many people think. Einstein says that he camne up with the theory of relativity while riding his bike. The Wright Brothers ran a bicycle shop and were cyclists before they were “first in flight”

    Cycling has a long and very impressive history. If you are ever near New Bremen Ohio, you should stop in at the Bicycle Museum there. You will learn a tremendous amount about Cycling.

    You may not realize it but it was Cyclists in the early 1900’s that worked to get paved roads and better maps. It was these roads that allowed the development of the infant industry that was then often called a horseless carriage, now of course the Automobile is far more used than the bicycle in the US. In many countries though the bicycle is used quite extensively.

    I belong to two bicycle clubs, both of them and many others that I know of, help various charities with money raised from the rides they do.

    What does cycling benefit?

    Just about everything and everyone as long as the riders follow the rules and the cyclists and auto drivers follow a share the road, same roads, same rules, same right attitude.

    The very small downside comes from those that would break the rules and unfortunately we have those types fo fools in everything.

    Becuase of lots of cycling ive gotten a lot fitter. It gives u alot of leg muscle so u can run faster and better too. It helps save the environment and can be something enjoying jus to do in ur spare time. But if u have back/neck problems (like me) u have to make sure u get a bike that wont make u hunch. People expect to cycle about flat ground and get leg muscles so when cycling u hav to try long distances of ground that varies. Goes uphill and down, that make u work harder and get fitter
