RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The bicycle is the most efficient form of locomotion ever invented. Biking itself signifies a strong statement of solidarity for those wanting to reduce and eliminate our dependence on hydrocarbons derived from fossil fuels. For every bike you see on the road, you can most likely assure there is one less car.
Bikes also produce less tangible benefits such as reducing unwanted noise and improving the health of those riding them, while also reducing stress. Putting the leisure of biking aside, people need to move back and forth from home and work . . .
