Whether you like hitting the road solo or spending a weekend getaway with your family, biking's popularity has surged. In great measure, COVID-19 impacted its growth when bike sales saw a 25-30% increase.

Today, over 51 million Americans ride a bicycle each year, making it the 3rd most popular outdoor activity in the US. Running and fishing are the 1st and 2nd most popular outdoor activities.

Even though running ranks first, only 15% of Americans indicated they ran last year. Compare that to biking, where 51% of the population rode a bike.

America loves its bikes, with the average household owning 2.6 bicycles. Avid cyclists may own two to four bikes – perhaps a road bike and a mountain bike to hit the trails.

Bicycle World exists to feed that passion. We started the business because of our love for biking. And we enjoy sharing our experience and knowledge with everyone.

So, welcome to our biking blogs. It's a place to learn about products, get tips for improving performance, and enjoy talking bikes!
