Main motivation of cycling
Large races became popular during the 1890s "Golden Age of Cycling", with events across Europe, and in the U.S. and Japan as well. At one point, almost every major city in the US had a velodrome or two for track racing events, however since the middle of the 20th century cycling has become a minority sport in the US .
In the Second Boer War, both sides used bicycles for scouting. In World War I, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand used bicycles to move troops.

Encouragement of cycling
The bicycle is much smaller slower speeds and lower maintenance and infrastructure needs than the car.
Car-free city centers, or a shift to more bicycle-centered urban design can make great savings in our transport systems’ chain of impact.
Energy use and greenhouse emissions associated with the provision of infrastructure and services for bicycles are considerably less than the requirements for cars.
