10 Reasons for More Bike Trails







Number 1

Safety

Bicycles and motor vehicles frequently menace each other on streets!

  • Regular roadways aren't wide enough for both to travel side-by-side!
  • Each approaches and advances through intersections differently!
  • Car doors opening toward the travel lane are a hazard to bicyclists!
  • Speed differentials are huge!
  • Visibility of bicycles, particularly at dusk, dawn, and dark, can be poor!







Number 2

Exercise

Easier access to more bike trails will encourage their usage!

  • Readily available bike trails will be like welcome mats!
  • Getting places safely while moving our bodies is part of the lure!
  • Bicycling can be part of a rigorous exercise program for all ages!







Number 3

Health

Bike trails contribute to healthier citizens!

  • Bike riding can be aerobic!
  • Bike riding can raise your heart rate!
  • Bike riding can be part of a weight loss program!







Number 4

Innovation

More bike demand and usage could lead to better bikes!

  • Biodynamic design improvements for bicycles are overdue!
  • Bicycles could be designed to use our musculature better!
  • Bicycles could be designed for greater safety!
  • Bicycle mechanisms could be greatly enhanced!







Number 5

Profits

More bike trails could lead to more bicycle sales!

  • There's a potentially much bigger market for bicycle sales nationwide!
  • Demand for bicycle helmets, clothing, and accoutrements also could increase!
  • Bicycle rest stops, from food to shelter, further could develop - bikeinns, eatnbike, bednbike, and so on!







Number 6

Environment


From noise to pollutants, bikes are environmentally friendly!

  • Bicycles don't need mufflers because they're quiet!
  • Bicycles don't spew chemicals into our environment!
  • Bicycles generally don't disturb neighbors and communities!







Number 7

Psychological

It feels good to bike ride!

  • Propelling oneself forward with relative ease is thrilling!
  • Most folks can learn to bike ride!
  • It's a little bit like mobile yoga!
  • Bicycling is both invigorating and relaxing!







Number 8

Neighborliness

People say hello to each other on bike trails!

  • Recognition and appreciation of fellow human beings is much easier than in cars!
  • The pace of bicycling generally permits some conversation!
  • Acknowledgement of non-bicyclists even is possible!







Number 9

Self-Sufficiency

Bicycles feel more like an extension of our own bodies!

  • There is a sense of achieving travel on our own power!
  • Pedals become an extension of our legs and feet!
  • Time and distance generally seem more human-scaled!







Number 10

Peacefulness

Bicycling can be a spiritual experience!

  • Particularly on bicycle trails, away from the tumult of motor vehicles, bicyclists can appreciate the moment!
  • Bicycle trails often can provide beautiful waterside and wooded scenery!
  • Bike trails often can permit bicyclists to listen to and actually hear nature!
