This pretty well sums it up.

Gas station sign in Hazelton B.C. Sorta gives definition on why we ride bikes. http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=h...ed=0CB8Q9QEwAA

LOL! Especially the sign for the refinancing.

The website behind the pic was a bit intriguing, too; the Japanese street style bit was something to scratch the head over. Kind of a look that's meant first to JAR the eyes, then invoke some fantasy image -- sometimes sexual, others, comic. Always a direct "finger" to "normalcy".

Daylight Savings time screws me up. I can't start riding to work until the end of April. I leave my house at 5:30 am when I ride and it's just not safe in the fall/winter months.

He's losing sleep over the Lost finale. Good grief.

Why We Ride Bikes



Reasons to ride a bike:
1. It's fun.

2. It saves money.

3. It's environmentally responsible.

4. It's liberating: "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel. It gives a woman a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. It makes her feel as if she were independent. The moment she takes her seat she knows she can't get into harm unless she gets off her bicycle, and away she goes, the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood." Susan B. Anthony, New York World, February 2, 1896. (Women's Advisory Cycling Council)

5. It's healthy.

6. It helps our national economy.
