Benefits of cycling as old technology

Do you like cycling? I do not.

Nowadays, cycling has several meanings; a way of exercise, commuting method, and a hobby. Its history is perhaps originated from the early 19th century. After the invention of the car, the bicycle has been considered as a cheap and powerless alternative of the car. But recently, its merits are reassessed.

In my opinion, there are two advantages of cycling. First, it is costless both for the rider and the earth. You need no parole to ride the bike. And it creates no emission, which is deemed quite harmful globally. And second, cycling can promote your health. It is not limited to maintaining your physical activity. Some studies suggest the effect of regular cycling on your mental health.

The Conversation: Ten reasons why we should all love cyclists

It is common that old technology is admired again in the latest era. Some people love home-made cookies even if they can get machine-made ones with low cost. In Japanese, there are a few traditional hunters who keep a hawk as a partner, so-called "Taka-sho [hawk master]." Some Japanese luxury restaurants use wild birds caught by a hawk for serving to guests. It is because a lead bullet damages the taste of the meat.

Unfortunately, the environment around me is not good for cycling. Therefore, I seldom use a bicycle.
