How does riding a bike save the environment?
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.

There are many ways you could save your environment such as conserving water. You could also pick up trash and plant trees.
An average bike in decent condition is very strong and can easily carry the weight of two adults during normal riding, so probably nothing. Someone more overweight than that w…ill probably cause frequent failures if he/she tries to ride a regular bike. But if the person really wants to ride a bike one can be built extra-strong, and probably capable of dealing with rider weights up to 600lbs or so. With that said, it's also quite easy to find a weaker-than-average bike too, particularly among high end road bikes, and those can quite easily fail due to excessive rider weight.
Around 2% of Americans ride bikes.
That very much depends on what you think of as "one ride". There are people who've spent years touring country after country on bicycles, covering thousands of miles. There's …a type of riding called randonneuring, and those guys will happily do 300+ miles in one go, only stopping for food and toilets, and not sleeping on the whole trip.
you can save water, energy, and recycle unplug your cellphone and charger when it's done charging instead of riding your own car you can carpool or better yet walk or… ride your bike you can also turn the lights off when you leave the room plus turn the water off when your not using it in the winter instead of using heaters you can try wearing a sweater or your coat that way you'll be warmer. Plus you're helping the fight against climate changes same goes in the summer time. Instead of turning on the AC you can always open the windows or us electric fans because you can unplug when you're done using it. you can save the environment by using the 3Rs - reduce, reuse and recycle! practise these few steps everyday and you will be able to play your part in saving the environment we can save the environment by not polluting and help clean the world you can save electricity by turning off the lights when leaving the house not littering you should help the earth to be clean recycle everyday reduce your garbage when you go camping or hiking take all your rubbish home with you or throw in a proper dustbin. don't break branches of trees or carve your names on them. recycle things. say no to products made from animal hides and body parts plant more and more trees and preserve forest.

You can save electricity by not buying stuff that uses more electricity. For example, an old style TV uses a fraction of the power of wide screen plasma TV. So first, keep you…r old TV, and second if you have a TV, turn it off unless you are watching it. Some more examples:- Turn your computer off when you are not using it. Open a window instead of using and air-conditioner. At work, use a kettle to boil some water only when you need it. Think about other things that use electricity too. Like factories use a whole lot of electricity to make stuff which you buy and then throw away after a week or two. It's just waste! Don't buy stuff unless its necessary. Before you buy something, a good idea is to wait 1 month, and then see if you still want that thing. Most time you will have completely forgotten about it. So was it necessary?
Rule of thumb, if it has two wheels, you are a rider, if it has 4 or more wheels you are a driver.
Like all hobbies the practitioner do it because they find the activity enjoyable. While some prefer driving on the road, many prefer driving on gravel and off-road. This typ…e of riding is very different from street or racetrack riding. A few reasons: Instead of just asphalt, you get to drive on varied terrain (asphalt, gravel, sand, snow, etc..)It's physically hard to drive in terrain as it requires you to use your body much more actively.The mental aspects of mastering difficult techniques are rewarding.Trails not accessible to other vehicles tend to have less traffic and might be a welcome break from driving in cities / heavy trafficTrails can take you to and through very scenic places like mountains, valleys, forests, etc.. and may also be combined with camping Due to often riding where there is no traffic, safety is very important. If you have an accident the ambulance might not make it all the way to where you are, and if you are unable to call for help yourself it could take a very long time for someone to find you. A few safety tips: Always let someone know where you are going, and when you plan to be back.Bring a fully charged mobile phone (But beware of coverage)Ride with a friend if possibleThere are commercial products which have a gps that can alert someone of your location if you require assistance.Always bring a first aid kit, and simple tools for the bike.Remember to wear your gear. While offroading it's not uncommon to have minor accidents and low speed falls, but if you're not wearing protective gear (helmet, gloves, jacket, pants and especially offroad boots) a minor accident might loose you a great deal of skin, or worse. NOTE: in many countries (and probably states), the use of motor vehicles in terrain is regulated by law. Remember to check your local legislation before heading out into the terrain as your activities might damage natural habitats, disturb campers. It's no fun trying to get away from noise and pollution, just to have a noisy dirt bike fly by you on a narrow trail. Be considerate!
In general, you cannot use motorized vehicles on a bicycle trail.
Chemical energy from your food gets turned into kinetic energy and heat as your muscles work to power the bike forward. If you ride uphill chemical energy is also turned into …potential energy.
What I did to learn how to ride my bike is this: Find a long steady hill, preferable a bit of steadily up hill road in a cul-de-sac or a bit of path. Now get onto your bik…e, without your feet on the pedals balance down the hill. Once you have got used to that try the same thing with your feet on the pedals. After getting used to that try slowly rotating the pedals (or cycling). And there are the basic instructions to learn how to ride your bike on your own. Make sure you are close to home, so that if you fall off you can easily get home quickly. If you are a parent and want to help your child cycle, then follow these instructions. Go to your nearest park on a nice day (with your child's bike), get your child to get on their bike and keep hold of the under of the bikes' seat. Get your child to start pedaling, but not too fast! When you think your child is used to cycling, let go and let them cycle independently. Another way of teaching your child to cycle is to use some stabilizers. Once they can cycle fairly fast with them on take them off, 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 going to show tell you some tips which will take you a day to master. My child and started learning to ride his bike at age 7 which is a bit too late. A bicycle shop owner had told me that pushing you legs up quickly 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 and convince him or her that you'll be behind them at all times and while your child is on the bike him or her will feel as if you are pushing him while they are peddling. After that they know that they can ride the bike without their parents or training wheels interfering, therefore making them feel confident of themselves. And those are two tips you will need to get your child riding in no time 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 put your foot on the pedal that is facing high then push with your foot on the ground then start pedaling.
3 and up
Step off the pedal and put the kick-stand down.
yes you can but it would be quite a bumpy ride!
Pretty much wherever it isn't forbidden, which usually means freeways/highways and a few other special places.
