The thrill of the open road is nothing new, but now there are many options to enhance your enjoyment. Be it pure speed, comfort, or moving away from the paved roads there is a bike to suit all needs.
Road cycling is an activity most commonly performed on a bicycle. Road cycling in its modern form was invented in Germany on Aug 12, 1817. There are many types of bicycles that are used on the roads.
Dedicated road bicycles have drop handlebars and multiple gears, although there are single and fixed gear varieties. Road bikes also use narrow, high-pressure tires to decrease rolling resistance, and tend to be somewhat lighter than other types of bicycle. The drop handlebars are often positioned lower than the saddle in order to put the rider in a more aerodynamic position. The light weight and aerodynamics of a road bike allows this type of bicycle to be an efficient self-powered means of transportation.
