I mean, it's like $20 vs. your life, or potentially living the rest of your days like a vegetable...talk about priorities!

I have to say, I really enjoyed my rides into work this week. It's empowering to leave the car in the driveway.

It always does my heart good to see those cyclists out there!

Except when they aren't wearing helmets and / or are riding willy-nilly without following the rules of the road...!

My commute is 9 miles each way and I've calculated @ fifty some cents a mile, which they now say a mid-sized car costs to run I'm saving over $10 a DAY by cycling!

Thanks for sharing! My commute is only 8 miles, and I have thought about biking - need to stop thinking and start doing, especially with $4 gallon gas! But I need a bike first LOL!
