Bicycling is a great form of sustainable transportation and even greater that larger cities such as Los Angeles are now taking part to encourage bicycling and creating a bike friendly environment.

However it is important to note that bicycling can be dangerous and cause serious injuries. So if you decided to partake in bicycling or already do, then make sure to take all safety measures.
