As inspiring as it gets

I don't know if this has been posted before (and if so I'm sorry). Even if it was, it's still worth putting out again for those that didn't see it.

Sort of makes ANY excuse not to ride moot.

Someting is drastically wrong when a doctor Can prescribe mediacation and surgery. But Cant write a prescription for a Hardrock.

You know the "One Less Car" tube stickers We should make one up like a Prescrption Rx.
"Use at least once daily or whenever you want."
