I just wanted to highlight this post by Ezra linking an article about the joys of biking. We’ve had a very green week in my household—all in one day, I sold my truck and we picked up a bicycle that Marc got for his birthday. Talking to the lady at the bike shop, I discovered that they are overwhelmed right now with more sales than their suppliers can keep up with. Sales have apparently tripled in a year. I was struck by how the oil crisis, if it doesn’t complete overwhelm this country, could actually have positive benefits for our sedentary society. Anyway, I won’t belabor the point. I’ve already praised bicycle commuting as more fun than car commuting to the point of tedium.
So this post won’t be a complete waste of your time, a video from Mika Miko:
