    Good article... I especially like the comments about why cycling in America is so low...
    America is built around cars. Our cities, roads, parking lots and drive-throughs bow to them. Nice cars help define success.
    And the best way to resolve that:
    In a group of about 30 cyclists, we felt like the majority. It seemed the road was meant for bicycles and not cars. I could see why it was safer — cars saw us and gave us plenty of room when they passed.

    A recent study backs that up. Researchers found that the rate of cycling accidents falls as ridership rises. The more people ride, the more conscious drivers are of cyclists. It's called a virtuous cycle. The more people perceive cycling as safer, the more take it up.

    I knew it was all a lie when she said "cold air".
