There is often a controversy about whether it is better to cycle in the city or the country. Both places can be completely safe if the driver is aware of the surroundings and takes the customary precautions. Big cities actually have the highest number of cyclists because people find it easy to get around without having to use public transportation or private cars. Of course it is always possible to put the bike on the bus or train so that broadens the places someone can go on a bike.
The country can be peaceful and scenic, but the distance between places to stop can be long and often there are hills and uneven terrain to considerer. It is really not possible to say which place is safer to ride in because both of them are great ways for people to travel by bike, but like everything else, it takes some precautions to stay safe. Bicyclist should understand all the rules of the road and dress appropriately. A helmet is always needed for people of all ages. Make sure the bike is in good working order and of course check out those brakes. Biking is not only great exercise, it is another way for everyday people to minimize their carbon footprint.
