You don't think a war that starts due to this car free community in Vermont is far fetched? What has ever happened in the history of the United States that would compare? We had a Civil War. Think...

Right. I've gone on multiple tours where I road "the whole way" on my bicycle, then took the train home. If I ride for 2,000 miles on my bicycle and then ride the train home have I broken some kind...

I agree. It's a little better than saying your ride across country would be on a "bike" and then taking your Goldwing.

Nobody's trying to spite environmentalists. It's less work to build a parking lot and get rid of the trees than it is to build one and preserve them. As a rule people opt for less work rather than...

Riding a bicycle during part of your working hours is not "being car free" and "being car free" has nothing to do with why the police use bicycles in some cases.

It is indeed amazing. Like you say it's not intuitive. The world is bigger than it seems from looking around in your own neck of the woods.

The heat from the earth is not what produced fossil fuels. And there's not more coming. We're using them up and then they'll be gone. Fossile fuels were formed in the Carboniferous Period and...

Of course on a personal level I assume you know I agree. But we're obviously not typical in the love of an active and sustaining life enjoying nature and the outdoors. Look around you.

Makes sense. I noticed today that on the Atlanta Beltline they have a sign that says "no motorized vehicles". Very plain English. But I wonder if E bikes are considered "motorized"?

Yes, we could pickup this thread again in about 25 years so we'll be talking about something that exists. Until then we're talking about early prototypes that are not indicative of the real thing.

I did have a 40 mile RT commute and I loved it. Now my employer took my office away and has me working from home. I don't stay in near as good condition as a result.
