Bikes Make Life Better is the title of a new, fun video from the People for Bikes campaign.

 

In my view, bikes create space between obligations, they get us out in the fresh air, they can help us break a sweat or shuttle us fashionably across town. They can transport us to a neighboring community, across our state, or around the world. They inspire art, build community and self-confidence, and, I would wager, transform lives every day.

P.S. Adventure Cycling recommends wearing a helmet while riding your bike. To read about responses to the video -- including a rollicking discussion of the use of helmets -- check out this blog post from People for Bikes.

P.P.S How have bikes improved your life?
