The Importance of Biking in a Modern Age
Today, biking is not just a sport because it is also used for a myriad of other things. Each of these things show how important biking has become in our modern age. Take transportation, for example. People, often in populated areas, have been switching to biking instead of driving in order to get to where they need to go. This is especially evident in cities, where people often live close to their place of occupation. Another reason why biking has become so important is because of rising gasoline prices. The average price of gasoline has been rising steadily for years. In order to save money, and the environment, people have begun switching to biking. A third reason relating to biking's importance is exercise. For many people needing to slim down or gain muscle, biking has been their answer. Bicycles have also spawned numerous biking competitions and races. These are only a few examples of how biking has impacted our lives. There are many other effects that biking has had on our world.
