More Information On Cyclist:
Cycling, also called bicycling or biking, is the use of bicycles for transport, recreation, exercise, or sport. People engaged in cycling are referred to as “cyclists”, “bicyclists”, or “bikers”.
Apart from two-wheeled bicycles, “cycling” also includes the riding of unicycles, tricycles, quadricycles, recumbent, and similar human-powered vehicles (HPVs).
Bicycles provide numerous possible benefits in comparison with motor vehicles, including the sustained physical exercise involved in cycling, easier parking, increased maneuverability, and access to roads, bike paths, and rural trails.
Cycling also offers a reduced consumption of fossil fuels, less air or noise pollution, and much-reduced traffic congestion.
These lead to less financial cost to the user as well as to society at large (negligible damage to roads, less road area required).
By fitting bicycle racks on the front of buses, transit agencies can significantly increase the areas they can serve.
Cycling quickly became an activity after bicycles were introduced in the 19th century. Today, over 50 percent of the human population knows how to ride a bike.
