In a typical day of a professional athlete, you can only imagine how chaotic your scheduling could be. Let alone one of the best players in the world, Lebron James, guilty of a two-wheel heart-pumping work commute. While James was on his Miami Heat tenure (2010-14), he would frequently use his bicycle to commute for home games.
“I want to maximize everything I can and not waste an opportunity each and every day to compete and get better as a player,” James said in The Huffington Post. “I want to be the best. You’ve got to push the button sometimes.”
Incidences and examples like James’ and many other professional athletes, continue to truly show how powerful the bicycle is. The power to influence not only one city or country, but the world. Everyday people on our planet push for mobility, exercise, fun, or work, positively helping their bodies at a healthy cost to our planet. Fifty-Million in the bank, or .50 ¢, the bicycle doesn’t judge. Balance a bike to balance your life.
For many years, many economies of the world have been dependent on fossil fuels as their primary source of energy. This heavy reliance on fossil fuels has had a toll on the environment. We have observed drastic changes in climatic patterns resulting from global warming, due to high levels of carbon emissions from engines running on fossil fuels. This has led to the adoption of electricity as a more environmentally friendly alternative source of energy.
We have had a boom in the number of people using E-bikes in the recent past. What makes these bikes unique is the fact that they run on an electric motor powered by lithium-ion batteries.
With this influx of E-bikes, the main question is whether or not these lithium-ion batteries can sustainably meet our energy needs.
Riding a bike is a fun way to decompress and unwind. Many health perks come with cycling down the street on your two-wheeler. Pedaling reduces the risk of stroke, enhances cardiovascular fitness, lowers stress levels and joint mobility and coordination, increases bone strength, and enhances cardiovascular fitness. But did you know that cycling, even for a brief period, can extend your life by a couple of years?
