A bicycle can be the obvious transport of choice for those who need to commute, and otherwise travel around Inglewood and environs, but prefer to do so without adding yet another vehicle to the roads. As well as being environmentally friendly, cycling offers the additional benefit of being an excellent way to keep fit and healthy, and is also much more affordable than travelling either by car or by public transit. However, no option is perfect, and cycling’s negative attributes can be catastrophic. Due to the lack of a protective metal frame, should you be struck by a vehicle while cycling you are likely to sustain devastating, or even fatal, injuries.
