Cycling is a sport that is conducted on a two-wheeled vehicle that is man-powered by pedals. The frame of the bicycle supports the pedals and sprocket mechanism which is turned by the feet driving the rear wheel. The front wheel is guided by a handlebar which often has friction brake control levers for both the front and rear wheel mounted to it. The rear wheel is geared for climbing hills and for racing.
