Cycling is more environmentally friendly than other forms of transport. Why is it not popular in many places? And how to increase its popularity?

It is true that bike is a more effective way of protecting the environment than any other types of vehicle. Personally, I believe the fact that biking is not popular these days is attributed to a couple of reasons, and there are two strategies to popularize its use.

I believe the contributory factors to the less common use of bikes are because they are slow and unsafe. One fundamental reason is that compared with other modes of transport, such as planes and cars, bikes are the slowest form of transportation, so it would hardly satisfy the transport demands of the general population. In particular, some people who live in the suburbs commute to their workplace in city centers on a daily basis would find biking an unreasonable choice since they are very likely to be late for work. Another reason is that biking is arguably one of the most dangerous activities when taking weather and risks into consideration. In fact, an accident could occur anytime as a result of a slippery road, loss of concentration, or psychological lapse, and if the repercussion were as serious as concussion, the life of the rider would be at risk.

In order to promote the use of bikes, there are a couple of tactics that governments could use. First, the government could impose higher taxes on fuel prices, which would discourage many people from using cars. Given the rise in fuel costs, car users would find it virtually impossible to accommodate the compounding costs of vehicles, accommodation and meals, and hopefully, they would eventually turn to use bikes. Second, many people these days seem oblivious to the status quo of the environment, so environmental campaigns would help to develop their environmental awareness. For instance, an event that was hosted by a group of environmentalists in Vietnam not just discouraged local people from littering but also made them aware that exhaust fumes discharged from their cars are detrimental to their surroundings, and how biking could be beneficial to the environment.

In conclusion, I am convinced that the leading causes of biking being not popular are its safety and slowness, and tax imposition and environmental campaigns are conducive to the promotion of biking.

AlpheccaStars your review and feedback are really helpful. Thanks a lot!

It is true that (Those are superfluous, unnecessary words. Would you write a false statement? Avoid these kinds of clauses. They add nothing to the meaning of your essay.)

Thank AlpheccaStars very much for your efforts,

I'm wondering if it is okay to write, "In particular, people commuting from the suburbs on a daily basis would find biking an unreasonable choice". I believe people would understand immediately if I said "commuting from the suburbs". Thanks

Yes, that's fine. But the idea is the distance, not the direction.

"In particular, people commuting long distances on a daily basis would find biking an unreasonable choice"
"In particular, people commuting distances greater than 20 km on a daily basis would find biking an unreasonable choice"

Anyone who is willing to give my band score would be all appreciated!
