Au Sable River Valley Biking

Biking, also called bicycling or cycling, is the use of bicycles for transport, recreation, or for sport. Persons engaged in biking are referred to as "bikers", "cyclists", or less commonly, as "bicyclists". Apart from two-wheeled bicycles, "biking" also includes the riding of unicycles, tricycles, quadracycles, and similar human-powered vehicles (HPVs). Biking is widely regarded as a very effective and efficient mode of transportation optimal for short to moderate distances. Bicycles provide numerous benefits by comparison with motor vehicles, including the sustained physical exercise necessarily involved in biking, that biking involves a reduced consumption of fossil fuels, less air or noise pollution, much reduced traffic congestion, easier parking, greater maneuverability, and access to both roads and paths. The advantages also include reduced financial cost to the user as well as to society at large (negligible damage to roads, less road area required). By fitting bicycle racks on the front of business, transit agencies can significantly increase the areas they can serve. Among the disadvantages of biking are the inherent instability of the bicycle, the immensely reduced protection in crashes (especially in collisions with motor vehicles), longer travel time (except in densely populated areas), vulnerability to weather conditions, difficulty in transporting passengers, competition (and interference) with socially beneficial forms of mass public transit, and the particular levels of skill and fitness required by cycling. Mountain biking began in the 1970’s, originally as a downhill sport, practiced on customized cruiser bicycles. Most mountain biking takes place on dirt roads, trails and in purpose-built parks.
