For bicycling enthusiasts, there is a wide range of benefits that come from their chosen form of transportation. Biking reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Bikers are engaging in aerobic exercise that helps keep their body and heart in better shape. They can sometimes commute more quickly and directly than those traveling in cars, public transportation or taxis. For many, biking is simply an enjoyable activity.
However, there is a downside to biking as a means of transportation, particularly for commuters: serious accidents with those who operate motor vehicles. If you have suffered a car/bicycle accident, you need an attorney.
