THE PRACTICE OF CYCLING/MOTORCYCLING
Nowadays, cycling can be practiced in different ways, for example:
-The mountain bike: is a bike to ride through nature. Although it is generally heavier, with off-road tires and suspension, the mountain bike can withstand all shocks and vibrations. Mountain biking is a sport that is practiced in different disciplines such as cross-country, downhill or enduro.
-The road bike : Although it is similar to track cycling or cyclo-cross, road cycling is very demanding. Durable and tactical, it requires considerable effort often over several passes.
-The Urban Bike : represents this sport in an urban environment. Here, we are talking about the bicycle trips that "Mr. Everybody" can make, over a few kilometres in cities. As you must know, today the bicycle is the fastest mode of transport in the city, if you travel less than 7km.
