Bike pathAfter running, biking is probably the most popular weekend activity for all ages worldwide.

Whether you're traveling solo, or with friends and family, bicycling is a great stress reliever. Just ask any traveler who's returned from a travel bike tour to discover what the world looks like from the seat of a bike. It virtually puts a whole new spin on things.

Nearer to home, meanwhile, biking is always a good excuse just to get out into the open air, and hit a scenic bike path or trail either in major cities or on backwoods country roads.

Biking has always been the top choice for transportation in Europe, but in the U.S., with movements like National Bike to Work Day, the bike is just beginning to replace the traditional gas guzzler -- as America grows to realize the obvious environmental, health, and cost-saving benefits of commuting to work by bike.

As a result, calls for establishing official bike paths are also on the rise in major cities.
