They argue a second boom in bicycling began in the 1960’s after “more than half a century of only casual interest in bicycling by adults.”  The bicycle returned due to an interest in exercise, an increase in leisure time, the availability of places to ride, “a revival of social acceptability of adult bicycling,” and an interest in simple, outdoor pleasures which all members of the family might enjoy.  By 1971 over seventy million Americans bicycled, most of them children.  Sales of adult bicycles represented twenty-five percent of the market. To meet the new demand, manufacturers began producing more lightweight, multi-geared bicycles.
