    You could argue that by temporarily combining your commuting with your training you are making the best use of your time, and freeing up other time to smell the roses. If you had a leisurely commute...

    It looks like when they built the highway they cut off access to the property (an animal shelter?) on the south side of the highway at the bottom of 80 St., so that spur for the moment only serves...

    That's pretty impressive, although I have seen similar videos before. However there were two moves that really wowed me. One was at 2:00 where she does a no-hands one-leg back-pedalling wheelie. How...

    Yes, when I drive in congested traffic I sometimes get quite impatient and irritable, as I am used to having almost no impediments when I bike. And in fact, on rare occasions when I find myself...

    I paid a lot to buy a house fairly centrally located in a large city so I could take the subway to work, and being able to bike was a happy by-product, triggered by a transit strike. For 20 years I...

    Can you say more about what you mean by "business model"? Usually you tout individual preference as the main influence which dictates the transportation choices and urban form - how does "business...

    That's cool. However, the only relevant hit I got was this one (reported by a couple of news sites):
    $619 billion missed from federal transparency site
    It simply reports that data on how money was...

    Apparently you're able to deduce that (and many other things) about other people here, also based on little or no evidence, so you fit right in!

    I agree, it's still a small portion that cycle, but at the same time, a change at the national level is still a striking finding, when you take scale into account.

    No, but even if they own a car, the fact more people are cycling in adverse conditions, could mean they are driving less and that is the topic of the thread.

    it is interesting that total driving distance is going up (and rebounding from a drop beginning in 2007) despite more people opting for other modes of commuting, and many others not commuting at all...
