Life is like riding a bicycle. In order to keep your balance, you must keep moving - Albert Einstein

As Mark Twain once said - Learn to ride a bicycle. You will not regret it if you live! From beach bikes and mountain bikes to exercise bikes and road bikes millions of people do it both for recreation and fitness as well as competitively.

No one argues about the benefits of bike riding - its taken for granted. But could exposure to air pollution for urban riders outweigh the health benefits? Studies have shown that urban dwellers suffer from more health problems than those who live in the countryside probably as a consequence of air pollution. Particulate matter pollution has been linked not only to heart disease, but also to respiratory problems, asthma, and allergies.

Without a doubt, when one thinks of cycling one also thinks of Lance Armstrong. Despite the lingering controversy surrounding his cycling career, we owe Lance a big thanks for giving courage to others with his victory over the big C, but also for his vision in founding LiveStrong, one of the more influential health organizations worldwide.
