Ride a Bike

Biking is a healthy, accessible and affordable mode of transportation. It offers a reduced environmental footprint with no fuel expenses or parking fees, low maintenance costs, and provides a cardiovascular workout.

With thousands of miles of bicycle routes and increasing focus on improving bicycling safety and access in Pennsylvania, there are lots of ways that you can ride your bike. Check out the state’s designated
BicyclePA routes and all of the trails and tourism options Pennsylvania provides.

It’s also great to use
along with public transportation — riding your bike to the train or bus terminal and taking public transit the rest of the way.

Bicycle seats vs. bike trailers for children

Q: I’m in the market to buy a bicycle seat so I can ride my bike with my 1 year old. Which is safer—a bicycle-mounted seat or a bike trailer?

A: Both types of bicycle seats have their safety issues. Because of its low profile, a bicycle trailer, which attaches to the rear axle or frame of a bike and can transport one child age 1 to 6 or so, can be difficult for motorists to see, especially in limited light. (If you go this route, get a 31/2 -foot- to 7-foot-tall, high-visibility orange flag for it.) Trailers are also wider than the bike, so they take up more of the roadway. If you’re riding on the shoulder of a road, which we don’t recommend because we consider trailers “off-road” vehicles, the trailer can stick out into the road if you’re not careful. And trailers can tip over if you

MADISON – The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program, which lost two members of its extended family last May, suffered another blow this month.

Peter Hedstrom, the father of redshirt freshman center Joe Hedstrom, suffered serious injuries in a bicycle accident April 9 and remains in North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.

According to a GoFundMe page set up for the family:

“On Sunday April 5th, 2020 Peter lost control of his bicycle and crashed on the road while riding with his wife Sharon. Peter was rushed to North Memorial hospital in an ambulance with his wife. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, cracked skull, broken collarbone, bruised lungs, three broken ribs and a fractured ear

Business is booming during pandemic for nonprofit bike shop helping everyone get a bicycle

TAMPA, Fla. — “The whole world wants bikes right now!”

It is safe to say Jon Dengler is the hardest-working man in Tampa’s University Mall right now.

The eerily-silent shopping center still hosts at least one bustling storefront: WellBuilt Bikes.

The shop is a nonprofit repurposing donated bikes and helps anyone get wheels, no matter their financial standing.

“I’ve been joking all week that our racks look like the toilet paper aisle!” says Dengler, who has a small dedicated staff helping him.

Business is booming at WellBuilt right now.

People without access to transportation are a big part of the clientele. Dengler says bus riders worried about the coronavirus are coming into the store for a safer alternative.

“And then we have all those people who are stuck in their houses and simply want to get outside for some exercise,” Dengler adds.

WellBuilt offers all bikes for all people.

“Much better than expected”

I didn’t expect much for the price and what I got in return was much better. The best thing about this top tube bag is that it fits my 4.3” cell phone and I’m able to use the touchscreen through the plastic without any problems. Thus, during a ride, I…Read more

“Does the job”

As simply a bike pack, assuming there was not phone display, I would rate this product 2 stars. The three attachment straps are all much too long for my road bike, so I had to customize them a little bit. Assuming you have some very amateur skill

The Outdoor Elliptical Bike – BicycleDesk

The New Bike Concept: Run, Don’t Ride

Here’s a novel idea: Instead of riding a bike, why not run on your bike? Instead of sitting on your bike, why not use a stand-up version?

The outdoor-capable elliptical bike is a relatively new kind of exercise wonder that is like riding a bicycle, but in place of sitting and pedaling away to propel yourself into motion, you’re upright and use a soft running motion to move forward instead.

Think of it as a running bike, instead of the regular one your ride. It’s so much fun to use, you’ll hardly realize how much exercise you’re also getting.

And in this article, I’ll show you just how it helps you achieve all that, how it works, and why.

It’ll be among the most fun you’ll experience while breaking a sweat. But first, some perspective.

The “I Want to Exercise But It’s
