While looking at the pages of ecogeek.com I noticed alot of buzz was surrounding electric vehicles. I know electric vehicles are theoretically more efficient than internal combustion vehicles, but I fear it will curb interest in bicycling as a mode of transport. We are at a crossroads now. We can either keep building for the car, or we can look towards mixed use transportation. I have been a commited bicycle commuter for almost three years now and have been exposed to our automobile-dominated society long enough to want change. I notice with rising fuel prices there is more of an understanding between car drivers and commuting cyclists. Many people at work will comment about how much money I'm saving, and while this may be the initial spark that it takes to get people interested, I hope it is the hidden benefits that keep people on the saddle. These hidden benifits include solving our nations obesity problem and relieving congestion on arterial roads, as well as stopping sprawl. I hope that new cyclists will keep on cycling, even when some pie in the sky electric vehicle rolls off the production line.
