Is Biking the New Golf?
Published by Yahoo Travel | By Annie Fitzsimmons
“Biking is the new golf,” Jack Ezon, President of Ovation Vacations in New York, declared on a panel during Virtuoso Week.
So is it?
On any given day in Central Park, I see bikers whizzing by in tight shorts and helmets, circling the park’s loop. There’s even an acronym for the men: MAMILS, or middle-aged men in Lycra.
But the popularity of biking isn’t limited to a certain age group or gender. Bike tours all over the world are growing exponentially in popularity, and many more hotels are providing free bikes for their guests to use during their stay.
