Cycling’s in fashion: nowadays, there are over 70 million bikes in Germany, from the traditional Dutch roadster to the sporty mountain bike and all the way to the technically cutting-edge e-bike. In total, Germany has more bikes than cars. What a positive! As you well know, not only is cycling fun, it’s also free of both charges and emissions, and doesn’t make a racket!
Cyclists not only pedal their way to fitness, they are also protecting themselves from heart diseases and burning those troublesome calories at the same time – even the strain on your joints is minimal compared to other hobbies, such as jogging or playing football. Moving in the fresh air also strengthens your nerves and clears your head. No wonder cycling has long since held the top spot in leisure activity rankings, and not only in Germany.
