7. It’s a great family-bonding experience.
If you buy a bike for each member of your family, you will be able to go on exciting rides together. It’s much more fun than stuffing your family into a van and listening to them complain about the heat and the AC and the music all the way to your destination. Besides, your kids will have to put aside their phones for a while, and let’s face it: anything that accomplishes that is a win.
Alternately, you could invite your friends or boyfriend/girlfriend out on a trip. Cycling is pretty much a universal bonding experience: it’s one of the coolest things about it.
