Remember when you were a kid, and the only way to get to your friend’s house was on your trusty 10-speed bike? Many of us relied on our bicycles as a form of transportation long before we got a license to drive. In our childhood, bikes weren’t just the vehicle that transported us to our next adventure… Riding itself was the adventure! And most of us were never motivated to get outside for a bike ride because we needed to burn some calories. Our reasons for riding were much simpler: We just wanted something fun to do on a Saturday!
