Two-Wheeled World

Encouraging cycling through innovations that facilitate biking
Implications - According to a 2010 report by the National Bicycle Dealers Association, in 2009 the U.S. bicycle industry sold $5.6 billion in bicycles and equipment. Thus, there is no question that today’s consumers love two-wheeled transport, whether for environmental or health reasons. To accommodate the growing number of bike-lovers, innovations are becoming available that make cycling easier, from increased urban bike rentals and bike lanes to bike storage areas and on-the-go repair stations.
