or 4. or 1. or 10! Choose a number that works for your fitness level and schedule, and then commit to never drive to a destination if it is less than that distance. I bike if it's less than 5 miles, or walk if less than 1 mile. This saves money, benefits the environment, and adds cardio minutes!

    It works unless you need to look presentable for your job when you get there...especially difficult in the rain when cars slosh standing water up one's legs!

    Great idea. I am to adicted to saving time and energy I take the car. Walking serves several purposes, exercise and saving fuel are only a couple.
