Playground
A PLAYGROUND, PLAYPARK, or PLAY AREA is a place specifically designed to enable children to play there. It is typically outdoors. While a playground is usually designed for children, some target other age groups. Berlin's Preußenpark for example is designed for people aged 70 or higher. A playground might exclude children below a certain age. Modern playgrounds often have recreational equipment such as the seesaw , merry-go-round , swingset , slide , jungle gym , chin-up bars , sandbox , spring rider , trapeze rings, playhouses, and mazes , many of which help children develop physical coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as providing recreation and enjoyment and supporting social and emotional development. Common in modern playgrounds are play structures that link many different pieces of equipment. Playgrounds often also have facilities for playing informal games of adult sports , such as a baseball diamond , a skating arena, a basketball court , or a tether ball

Bicycle
A BICYCLE, also called a CYCLE or BIKE, is a human-powered , pedal-driven , single-track vehicle , having two wheels attached to a frame , one behind the other. A bicycle rider is called a cyclist , or bicyclist. Bicycles were introduced in the late 19th century in Europe, and by the early 21st century, more than 1 billion have been produced worldwide. These numbers far exceed the number of cars, both in total and ranked by the number of individual models produced. They are the principal means of transportation in many regions. They also provide a popular form of recreation, and have been adapted for use as children's toys, general fitness , military and police applications, courier services , bicycle racing and bicycle stunts. The basic shape and configuration of a typical upright or "safety bicycle" , has changed little since the first chain-driven model was developed around 1885

Effective Cycling
EFFECTIVE CYCLING is a trademarked cycling educational program designed by John Forester , which was the national education program of the League of American Wheelmen for a number of years until Forester withdrew permission for them to use the name. It is also the name of Forester's book (first published in 1976 and revised numerous times since then) on the topic. The program consists of textbooks and training courses (for both students and instructors) and a training video for students. The central teaching of the program is vehicular cycling practices. These practices are based upon years of statistical data about the experiences of cyclists . The primary recommendation is that a bicyclist, as an operator of a pedal vehicle , should follow the rules of the road that are common to all vehicle types. Forester argues that behaving otherwise actually increases the likelihood of collisions with other vehicles
