Find parks matching your amenity choices.Biking is great fun, and it's good for you. It increases cardiovascular fitness, balance, strength and stamina. And it's a great stress reliever, especially in the great outdoors while you're breathing clean, fresh, country air. You can get to places on a bike, especially a mountain bike, where cars can't go. Biking also helps the environment; bikes are efficient, cause no pollution, and require a lot less energy and materials to manufacture than does a car. You even feel more like part of the environment when you're on a bike.
