My friend Pete has been commuting on a bicycle for one year. Here’s a sample:
- I’ve noticed the seasons a bit more. Nuances in the way Summer slips into Fall and Fall slips into Winter are just stunning.
- I’ve lost a bit of weight. I’m down at least 10 pounds due to biking…
There’s also a pic of his bike after a year’s commuting in all weather; it’s holding up very well (“Friends don’t let friends ride junk”) and so is he. If you’re thinking about ditching the car, check it out.
