This document shows how most developed countries have not made their environments “bike friendly” causing the world bicycle ownership rates to go downhill. In addition, this fuels a lazy community with higher risks of obesity, more traffic, and more pollution. This document also said that ” China in particular experienced a collapse in bike ownership rates since 1992, when 97 per cent of households had bikes. However, this dropped to 63 per cent by 2009.”Also in undeveloped countries the is an estimate of 1 out of 5 households owning at-least 1 bike In my opinion this causes more pollution, dirtier and collapsed roads and higher numbers of child and adult obesity. Also we are encouraging the community to be lazy and remain inactive in their day to day routines.
