Historical Context:
"Imagine if there were an invention that could solve some of society's biggest problems. An invention that promotes healthy lifestyles, lowers our oil dependency, and is environmentally friendly. I believe that bicycles are the answer America is searching for. We could combat obesity epidemic through the exercise it provides. People could save countless dollars by riding to nearby locations rather than driving. We could cut harmful emissions and help save our environment. I believe that bicycles are they key to positive change in this county and all around the world. Imagine a better America, one bicycle at a time." -Nicola J. Fester
