There are tons of reasons to bike. Tons. It’s ridiculously, insanely good for helping preserve a livable planet. It’s ridiculously, insanely good for our health. And it’s ridiculously, insanely efficient (saves a ton of money for individuals, cities, counties, states, and countries).
But there’s one more key reason that is often overlooked: it’s ridiculously, insanely fun and relaxing.
There’s hardly a thing on this planet that is as fun and relaxing as riding a bike, in my humble opinion. Just as a bit of a portrayal of that, here are a few pics and videos:
