I never get urge to hit walkers or runners with my car like I do asshole cyclists, so I'll go with the former.

I give the advantage to walking/running

 

cycling does have the benefit to go further faster to cover more distance to enjoy a travel experience but then one has to contend with mechanical headaches and PAINFUL crashes!

Some valid points being raised about the repulsiveness of some cyclists, but I guess a low impact sport which applies constant pressure to the anus is bound to attract certain types.

Zned, can you recommend a good bike?

jodienda - Swimming is the correct answer.

we are land creatures which travel more by land than by any other form in our usual daily habits and is why the comparision is between cycling and running as a form of physical powered navigation

walking/running is also cheaper and allows for more freedom and flexibility in travel.  

 

I am a fan and advocate of both modes ot muscle powered travel and certainly each is superior to the FATmobile!

This correct answer is correct.

Swimming Is overrrated and super boring after 30 minutes. 

running is harder on the body and just plain sucks. 

Cycling is wonderful.

I’d say 30 seconds.

Cycling is easy to manage heart rate and splits with zero impact....I’m a big fan...but ‘speed’ walking also burns calories and allows heart rate management with minimal negative body impact.   Runnng is great, but has downside as it can destroy your knees.  

 

Rowing better than all of them.

when feeling a little frisky, I prefer a brief slow-jog shuffle in favor of speed walking which seems could a bit traumatic to the structure perhaps equal to the pounding shock of a harsh sprint.

I'd say the latter, though to be fair I am a bit biased. Could never get into cycling for some reason.

cycling requires a more spirited courageous constitution of daring fortitude.  

 

cyclists = the cavalier pilots

 

runners = the foot soldier

Superior for what GOAL? Imprecise question is imprecise


You can get probably more fat loss running, and in 25% of the time as well. You can do it anywhere. Costs nothing.

But I much prefer cycling. Unless you run in wild areas, with different terrain, is is monotonous. In cycling, there are flats, climbs, descents, much different in groups or alone, etc. A lot more variety. You cover more distance so can see way different sights, etc.

But there's crashes, high costs, mechanical issues, theft, raging drivers and on and on. Still, cycling is addictive and fun.

"why should kids have all the fun"-----video

 

what a smart statement!  Of course the mature fellow may not have the same vigorous capability of his youth but this old fashioned unnecessary attitude that one should cease to have fun after a certain age needs to end and I encourage the good men of the OG to set the example and pioneer a new trend that sets the standard where people of all ages are allowed to  have fun.

 

I would love to see groups of seniors riding razor scooters on city sidewalks and around the parks enoying life!

Canadian in Tour de France who ran a sub-4 mile says he still runs because doing nothing but pedaling for 3 weeks makes you 'a better bike racer but a worse human' physically-----
