I hate to be negative but our world is not right for everyone because it is a uphill battle

Physical Labor
Bad Motorists
thieves / broken parts
falling / getting hit

I think we should get more people into biking but there is not going to be the "one thing" like 4 dollar gas or incentives that will get people on bikes.

I asked my boss (Just started a New Job...YAY ) if I could bring my new (used) Bike into the ER, so it didnt have to be left outside. She looked at me like I had horns growing out of my head! Not because I wanted to bring the bike in, but becuase I will ride 12 miles to work! Luckly I work at a hospital, and there are Shower rooms EVERYWHERE (and yet, NO ONE uses them ???)
