Cycling is an amazing sport with lots of benefits. Teens are taking up school sports such as football, rugby, and badminton but what about cycling?
Biking has only been considered as a form of transportation to students. There are occasional mountain bikers but I’ve never seen anyone with a road bike.
Here’s my list on why students don’t cycle.
Cycling is an expensive sport. Especially if you want to get a good looking and functioning bike. No kid would ever want to show their friends a Motorolla flip phone. With that being said, aesthetics matter.
Cycling club and teams
Schools offer very little support for cyclists. Some states offer driving courses but what about cycling safety? Cycling might become the ideal transportation in the future so why don’t we teach the fundamentals?
As cool as cycling already is, teens haven’t utilized the perks that cycling offers.
This was a fairly short list but how can we motivate and help students get on the road(cycling)?
