I just got back from a bicycle tour through the world and I’ve noticed that cycling is the most common way to explore new places, new people, and new places.
In fact, cycling is often more common than walking, according to the latest bike blue book series by National Geographic and Bike Share.
The series offers the most comprehensive, interactive bike map ever compiled of cycling and the bike share network.
