What would you like to do?
Because if you are using a Bicycle you are not burning a fossil fuel (petrol/gasoline), as you would be if you were driving a car and as you are not burning fossil fuels you are not adding additional Carbon Dioxide to the atmosphere, which if you did, would contribute to global warming.

What I did to learn how to ride my bike is this: Find a long steadyhill, preferable a bit of steadily up hill road in a cul-de-sac ora bit of path. Now get onto your bike, wi…thout your feet onthe pedals balance down the hill. Once you have got usedto that try the same thing with your feet on thepedals. After getting used to that try slowly rotating thepedals (or cycling). And there are the basic instructions to learnhow to ride your bike on your own. Make sure you are close to home, so that if you fall off you caneasily get home quickly. If you are a parent and want to help your child cycle, then followthese instructions. Go to your nearest park on a nice day (withyour child's bike), get your child to get on their bike and keephold of the under of the bikes' seat. Get your child to startpedaling, but not too fast! When you think your child is used tocycling, let go and let them cycle independently. Another way of teaching your child to cycle is to use somestabilizers. Once they can cycle fairly fast with them on take themoff, you may need to follow the instructions above after this. Usually a child learns riding a bike at age 3 to 5, and I am goingto show tell you some tips which will take you a day to master. Mychild and started learning to ride his bike at age 7 which is a bittoo late. A bicycle shop owner had told me that pushing you legs upquickly on the bike is a great way to get balancing on the bike.Next step is to push your child while he's on the bike peddling andconvince him or her that you'll be behind them at all times andwhile your child is on the bike him or her will feel as if you arepushing him while they are peddling. After that they know that theycan ride the bike without their parents or training wheelsinterfering, therefore making them feel confident of themselves.And those are two tips you will need to get your child riding in notime you just step on the paddle and keep you balance slowly and fast. You hold on the handles then put your leg over the bike and putyour foot on the pedal that is facing high then push with your footon the ground then start pedaling. First, try not to balance on the bike. Try to see how long you canremain upright before you must put your foot left. Probably theworst way to learn to ride is to find a very gently sloping hill,and coast down it. Do this a few times, then draw chalk marks onthe road and try steering around them. Once you can coast down thehill without falling over put your feet on the peddles and peddle.
No, actually riding a bike does not harm the environment. When you ride a bike you do not emit any exhaust fumes. Which means your not helping to deplete the ozone.

If there is no bike lane, then the appropriate place to ride is on the roadway. As a slower vehicle you must abide by the rules of the roadway and allow any traffic you are …holding up to pass.
It helps, by not using the car for short journeys. But we in the West need to do much more to cut fossil fuel use.
Rule of thumb, if it has two wheels, you are a rider, if it has 4 or more wheels you are a driver.
Depends entirely on how much riding the person does, and what the person would have done otherwise. If the person is riding a bicylce instread of using an motorized vehicle, t…hen some CO2 will be saved. If the person is riding instead of walking, then there's no difference.
Depends on what MPG the car you would have been using get.
They're pretty much the same, as neither need any fuel and don't have any emissions. If you're really strict, walking is a little bit better because less energy is n…eeded to make the shoes than to make the bike. OTOH, maybe you can use the bike instead of the car for some trips, which would make the bike better.
Step off the pedal and put the kick-stand down.
A bike is a bike is a bike, can you ride one you can ride them all - after a fashion. MTBs in particular are rather easy to handle as the riding position is fairly upright. In… terms of difficulties of merely riding down the road I'd say that a road bike for the same given size is more difficult to ride as it will have the rider more stretched out and hunched over, but it's not like that is hugely challenging either. The hardest bikes to ride are probably the recumbents, particularly the ones with waist steering. Those tends to take some getting used to.
Take the distince you are riding your bike, divide it by the miles per gallion that your car gets. This will give you the number of gallons of gas you save. For Example if you… are riding 30 miles and would have driven the car that gets 20 miles per gallon, then 30 divided by 20 equals 1.5. So you would be saving 1.5 gallons of gas.
well if ur wookin for a good peddle bicycle i would suggest gettin a huffy, mongoose, or the best bike in the world is a haro.
Bike riding is good exercise, but it only helps the environment ifit replaces burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) invehicles.
Avoiding powered transportation (cars, buses, even electric ones) will save energy, which would otherwise have to be generated mainly by burning fossil fuels. Combustion o…f fossil fuels adds carbon and pollution to the atmosphere.
