Best Bicycles for an Uphill Climb

Riding your bike around the city is a great way to unwind or add some exercise and variety to your daily commute. When your route includes a hill, you want a bike that can handle the incline. That’s why it’s important to find a women's beach cruiser bike with gears or other style that makes tackling hills a breeze. Follow this handy guide to find the best bike for heading uphill. Gears Are Your Friend Adjustable gears make it possible to ride your bike across a wide variety of terrain. If you’re planning to take on rolling hills on a regular basis, look for a bike that has multiple gears. There are great options for 7-speed or 21-speed models among bikes for women . Opt for a 7-speed version if you think you’ll be riding on non-flat, but not super-steep, streets.

This is especially true for Filipinos—and no one proves our resourcefulness and creativity more than this amazing Grade 12 artist, who didn’t need paint or pencils to create artwork.

Working with catsup Catsup was not the first medium he had used to create art, but

Did you know that you can also use potatoes to make bread and pastries? Aside from having a much richer flavor than using regular flour, the bread made from potato is much softer and fluffier.  Potatoes can be used in a lot more ways than what we are accustomed to.
