    I hate to be negative but our world is not right for everyone because it is a uphill battle

    Physical Labor
    Bad Motorists
    Weather
    thieves / broken parts
    falling / getting hit



    I think we should get more people into biking but there is not going to be the "one thing" like 4 dollar gas or incentives that will get people on bikes.
    The Ferrari ('05 Bianchi Forza) had a flat (Stupid Glass) the Japanese wagon ('77 Nishiki with Arkel Utility Basket) was in the body shop (On my bench being repainted...repent ye rust)
    so I took the SUV ( Cannondale V2000 Active 100SL)

    I asked my boss (Just started a New Job...YAY ) if I could bring my new (used) Bike into the ER, so it didnt have to be left outside. She looked at me like I had horns growing out of my head! Not because I wanted to bring the bike in, but becuase I will ride 12 miles to work! Luckly I work at a hospital, and there are Shower rooms EVERYWHERE (and yet, NO ONE uses them ???)
