I went on a casual ride around the neighborhood after work and passed not one, not two... but SIX other people on bikes! This is unheard of where I live. I was only out about an hour or so and riding at a very leisurely pace, enjoying the nice weather. I will occasionally pass another person on a bike, or a couple of kids maybe, but never SIX people in that span of time. Two of them had shopping bags from a nearby supermarket! Dare I think that gas prices might be leading to this overwhelming number of bicycles on the road?
