Saw this on Yahoo today and thought it was really cool option for bikes for the poor.
I wish more people in the US got the "power" that bikes offer. Fitness, outdoors, fun, less gas, etc. I've been a biker forever. First as transport from my house to the general store that was 1.5 miles away as a kid. Transport and Commerce for biking to school and being a paperboy. And taking a couple of cute girls to school on the handlebars and rack was never a bad thing. Transport as a teen. I regret my time away from biking but really blame it on cheap bigbox bikes. Nothing like banging your knee on your handlebars when a chain snaps to make you hate a bike. Now I try and commute to work at least 1 or 2 days a week and I ride another 1 or 2 times a week. I'm luck in that 80% of my grocery shopping I can walk to the store and back.
Hoping to go for another run today but it's looking a bit rainy and the quads are still quite sore. We shall see.
Tomorrow I might get to do the Little Bennett ride. We will see if this rain causes it to cancel.
