Riding a bike is much more convenient than driving a car or taking public transportation. You save a lot of gas and money.Living in the metropolitan area, bikes have become a staple way of getting around. Us Americans are attached to our cars, its more so a necessity to us. In European countries not everyone has a car. In my country, Sierra Leone, a lot of people walk , and some carpool. Our community is growing and we need to start finding ways to benefit ourselves, one way is to save gas and start riding bikes more often or even start walking more often.
