6. You can travel easier.
Bikes are not only great for navigating your own city: they are a nice efficient means of inter-city travel. If you happen to live in Europe, you can literally cross countries on your bike – isn’t that incredibly cool? There are special train tickets for cyclists, special routes for cyclists… a whole new world just waiting for you to explore it.
Even if your bicycle stays at home when you travel, most major cities now have a rent-a-bike service. If you know how to ride one – then nothing is stopping you from grabbing a map and going on an adventure.
