Biking is a fun, fast and healthy way to get around. We know what you’re thinking, bikes are slower than cars, and you don’t have time to bike. However, when you add up the time you save by taking shortcuts and not looking for parking, you’re not losing much. Plus, you get a great workout, so you can skip the gym and spend your evening however you want.
