Bicycles are considered an important tool for supporting the transportation, education, health, and sports sectors and are an essential means of transport in underdeveloped areas. Cycling helps improve health, reducing the risk of diseases such as cardiovascular issues, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. Additionally, cycling fosters creative thinking, increases social and environmental awareness, and reflects a clean transportation trend, contributing positively to environmental and climate protection.
