Let me explain. I had thought that I had cut my car usage down to about as low as I could get it from a family perspective. My wife has shown interest in cycling but no follow through so 2200 to 2600 a year seemed about as good as it was going to get. I use the car to go to Church, the doctorís office, the pharmacy and the occasional trip to the relativeís house and our semi monthly big food shopping trip. Small trips I do on my bike alone.
The other day out of the blue my wife says she wished there werenít so many cars running around and that we had better mass transit. Well we donít so I figured it was a moot point. However she has now decided that when we get back from Colorado after Christmas we can look at getting a Recumbent Trike so we can ride more together and if I get a basket for it we can do the grocery shopping by bike. This could knock another 500 miles off my yearly average. No one is more surprised than I am but I am also pleased. I better make sure there is air in the trailer tires.
