    Video link of happy St. Paul, MN commuter

    I enjoyed the following link to a video of a commuter in St. Paul, Minnesota who really enjoys her commute: http://photo.twincities.com/index.ph...seasons-video/

    This would make a good promotional bit in favor of bike commuting.

    I dream of a leisurely Summit Ave commute as well. For those who aren't local, that's the bulk of her commute. It's a nice wide boulevard lined with both million dollar Victorian era mansions and bike lanes on both sides all the way. *sigh*

    That's really nice. A great advertisement for bike commuting. Her route reminds me of our own Fabulous Forties neighborhood.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    It is a cool video and I would hope that someone in the broad casting industry would see it and run it at least once a day in all major cities, chances are slim but it would be nice
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    My commute to school is East River Road and either Summit or Marshall. Summit is a bit farther, but a nicer ride. Not as rich as the eastern stretch, but plenty wide and with a huge grassy median. Compared to the summer, my commute tripled in distance and gained at least that much climbing, but my average speed is over 1mph faster because there are so few lights and stop signs.

    What a great idea! As far as the video - quite an impressive bicycle promotion video. It must be tough to ride year round in Minnesota.
