What’s New In 2-Wheeled Fun
Wednesday Oct. 21—Did you know that most Cedar Falls residents live within one mile of a bicycle trail?
According to Brent Johnson, the owner of BikeTech, a bicycle specialty store, that is one of the reasons why bicycling in one of its various types and styles is such a popular pastime. There are bikes designed for common recreational riding as well as models suited for mountain and off-trail riding and even for extreme sports.
One of the latest advances is electronic shifting, which replaces mechanical cables with a computer cable for smooth and precise shifting.
A state association is working to improve the image and importance of bicycling for recreation, fitness and basic transportation.
We appreciate the time Brent spent with us today and for his informative comments.
