I have always thought that bicycling is one of the best forms of transportation. In fact if I had my choice I would not commute in a car at all on the highways on the way to the strip malls. I would much rather ride a bike everywhere. I would prefer that everything be within biking distance. Especially with the American Obesity epidemic, I like to think I get exercise on the way to work, school or the supermarket. And yes certain communities are set up this way with smart city planning. And kudos to them! A few of them that I know of are: Portland, Oregon; Minneapolis/St.Paul, Minnesota; and Davis, California; and also Montreal in Canada. Some college towns too are fairly easy to get around via Bicycle. Well here’s to bicycling and bicyclers. It’s not just for Europe anymore!
