The modern era sees a world full of motor vehicles which provide a fast commutation time than the non-motored ones. But with every pro, there comes a con and there are major cons when it comes to motored vehicles. All the motored vehicles run up on fuels which are decreasing day by day and hence, they might cause a shortage of resources for the future generations. Also, they contribute a significant amount of pollution to the environment which is and can harm everyone.
In contrast to these motored vehicles, there are non-motored vehicles which display the true sense of traveling. With the motored vehicles, the time flies but in these, one feels, sees and senses different sensations. Non-motored vehicles such as bicycles have very minimal or no impact at all on the environment, pollution wise. Pedaling a bicycle for at least 10 minutes burns a lot of calories and makes sure that your body remains fit. Hence, keeping the speed factor aside, riding a bicycle can turn out to be a fun way to commute and stay fit.

A bicycle that packs up modern-day style, is compact, comfortable and minimalistic at the same time. The Gocycle GX bicycle matches all the characteristics that were just mentioned and will make your every ride, one to remember. With a quick-fold and minimalistic approach to the design, the bike can turn heads wherever you take it.
