In some cities people are choosing cars instead of bicycles, while in other cities riding bikes are replacing cars. Why is this the case? Which development do you think is better?

It is believed by some people that driving vehicles are the
first
choice when they go out. Others,
on the contrary
, think that riding bicycles are prioritised.
This
essay will introduce reasons of the trend and give my opinions. Travelling by bikes have two advantages.
Firstly
,
Accept space
,
it is good for our health. The bicycle is an environment-friendly transportation as it never needs fuel, which causes no pollutants in the air. As the result, the risk of several diseases may be decreased.
Secondly
, Riding bicycles will save time in short distance route. There are always a large number of vehicles on the roads, especially during the rush hours in the big cities
such
as New York and Beijing.
Instead
of driving cars, riding bikes significantly reduce the traffic congestion and help residents save a lot of time in commuting. It is
also
reasonable as why cars are popular in some cities. It is widely known that driving is more efficient, particularly in long distance journey. Nowadays, more and more people would like to broaden views and explore new things by tourism. Comparing with the bikes, cars which do not require a lot of energy from travellers and are much faster can save a lot of time and give explorers more opportunities to views more places and scenery. In conclusion, in my mind, both approaches have their own pros and cons. There is no good or bad choice, It all depends on personal preference. Cycling can not only curb the carbon emissions but
also
help people in keeping both physical and mental health. Meanwhile, cars, in developing countries, can give people higher social status and provide a more efficient way for people to achieve the destination.
