Reuters: Car-driven society poses risk to Americans' health
It seems obvious, but possibly this will change a few attitudes: http://www.reuters.com/article/domes...54S00220090529
"But the question of how to readjust the balance away from car dependence and toward sidewalks, cycle lanes and denser communities is intensely political".
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
