Whether it’s to head to the beach, run an errand or go to work, residents and visitors in California often ride bicycles as a main source of transportation. Getting out and enjoying the weather is very beneficial, and traveling by bike is economical and environmentally conscious. Nonetheless, these are some set backs and risks associated with bicycle riding.
