Bike lanes and different roads are becoming more popular in a lot of beautiful places.  Either    there are people riding their bikes to stay healthy or just doing it for fun. Roads are becoming more and more popular because we need to keep our citizens safe. Safety is very important when it comes to having fun. Usually people have so much fun that they tend not to focus on what would be safer. Everyone doesn’t get the chance or have the time to get that daily work out as much as needed. America has a large percent of over weight people.
