It does.Usually, you'll be riding at about the same speed as the windspeed.If you and the wind is moving in the same direction, at the same speed, then you're not moving in relation to the wind. For you to feel the wind pushing you along, you have to be slower than the wind.
The youngest person to ride a bicycle was Tod Sleeman from Liverpool, UK born on the 19th of September 1991. He was aged 18 months and 3 days.
if average speed of 15mph then four hours. I'd say 15mph is a good beginner/average speed but 60 miles is a little far for an average beginner. But try it out. Pick the day on the calendar you want to ride 60 miles and back off a few weeks and aim for 75% that distance in once a week long rides....

Hard to advise w/o knowing what you consider "affordable". If you know a bit about bikes, craigslist, yardsales etc can offergreat bargains. If you don't, you might pick up a real lemon. Generally, you should avoid department store bikes. They're cheap,but also real poor quality.

Just get a regular battery powered diode rear light for a bike, and figure out a way to attach it to your trailer. No need for a trailer-specific light.
The "love handles" are just excess fat, stored under the skin. To lose them you need to lose some fat(and weight) all over.And when it comes to burning calories, what you do isn't that important. How hard and for how long you go at it however is real important.Basically everything that get you...
Depends on a lot of things, your age, your gender, your fitness level, how hard you ride to start with. I'd use about 3600 cals in 60 miles, but I'm an experienced rider and I ride fairly hard. 2400 cals in 6 miles or even less is probably more normal.For me, 3600 cals would equal 1 lbs weight loss...

Bicycles can be ridden pretty much everywhere. But the only place that has a special name would be a velodrome, an arena for track cycling.
First you need to make sure you aren't trespassing, then that your bike is up to it. Try to hook up with a riding buddy or make sure that someone knows your route in case you'd have an accident. Carry stuff for basic repairs, like a flat. Bring some water.
While cycling there isn't much you can do, apart from doing as much as possible of the ride standing, out of the saddle.

It really doesn't matter much. When it comes to using up calories, the important thing is for how long, and how hard you're working. This means that if you measure your workout by distance, walking is "better" as you travel slower and will have to keep at it for a longer time. But if you measure by...
An AM bike is basically a cross between a XC and a DH MTB. Usually full suspension and long enough travel to take some fairly serious drops and jumps, but still light enough and with a gear ratio and a ride position that'll make it somewhat useful on the flat and during climbs. An AM bike is the...

The tire, the air-filled rubber donut that meets the ground, is mounted on the rim.
A Madison (also a girl's name).
Personally, I don't find that a full-suspension bike is any easier on my knees than a hard-tail. The only real benefit of a full-suspension bike is that any rocks, drops or bumps you go over will be softened and therefore put less up into the seat and your upper-body. The only thing i can...
Pretty much as soon as there were enough bicycles to hold a race
Depends on how hard you ride. If you're only pootling around - not many. If you're getting sweaty and winded, as much as 200. around 10 .
