Recreational Bicycling Remains Popular


Las Vegas, NV (August 16, 2007) – Learning to ride a bike ranks high up there for many people as a childhood right of passage. The freedom and independence experienced when riding a bike remains a cherished memory. The hours spent bicycling around the neighborhood and to and from a friend’s house was probably the starting point for many people of a life long love affair with bicycling. A relationship that has continued to propel the global popularity of recreational bicycling as supported by industry data.

Cycling is the seventh most popular recreational activity in the U.S., according to the National Bicycle Dealers Association. A survey by the National Sporting Goods Association found that 43.1 million Americans age seven and older have ridden a bicycle, on average, six times or more. Additionally, an industry trade publication showed that 94.5 percent of those who ride bikes did so for recreation or fitness, 5.2 percent for transportation, and 0.3 percent for racing.
The obvious continued popularity of recreational bicycling comes as little surprise to John Vanhara, President of XYZ Bikes, an internet-based bicycle manufacturer and distributor. “Bicycling is one of those few things that everyone has fun doing. The whole family can enjoy biking together, young and old alike. It’s not too strenuous, but provides great exercise. Bicycling can even prove to be a great stress reliever after a busy day at work. The environmental benefits are also notable. With so many potential rewards and benefits resulting from bicycling, I believe the popularity of bicycling as a recreational activity will continue for several years to come.”
