    I'm not sure there is such a clear-cut correlation.

    A certain segment of the "car-free" is made up of people who don't really want to be car-free, but are out on bikes due to lack of money, DUI...

    It is, but I believe it. From 2009 through 2013, my s/o's yearly totals have ranged from a low of 11,414 to a high of 17,344. (Having a 24-mile one-way work commute certainly has an effect!)

    I like rollers. I had a good quality fluid trainer, but hated how my bike felt clamped into it.
