n.— «Bike trails are commonly known as “singles,” because they constitute narrow trails just wide enough for a single bicycle bearing one rider. Bikers ride in a single file and blend in with nature and the topography surrounding them. » —“Bicycle races are coming your way” by Danit Nitzan Haaretz (Israel) Oct. 30, 2007.
