    Marketplace "Bike Chic" feature

    I was just listening to Marketplace, and they had a report on how companies are incorporating bikes in to their marketing strategies due to the high number of bike commuters like ourselves popping up in metro areas, and even smaller towns.

    I specifically like the orange Public model

    Check it out:

    I'm thankful the trend is accelerating, just wish it was faster. Nice to have a positive reason for getting a bike, even if only for looks.

    Well, cars are cool mainly because of looks. Many people never race their Corvette's or 370Z's. I just want to see more smaller towns get bike-friendly. With the ability to pay bills online, and banking online, and even shopping online, we are really in a prime era to move toward villages. I know that living here in Clemson has been amazing on a bike, and I will suspect that my home town of Simpsonville (a small suburb of Greenville) would be similar to ride in... if only they would support a very minor change to how they build roads.
