For me cycling is about reducing my carbon foot print. In a normal year I ride my bikes about 6 or 7 thousand miles. I drive my car less than 3 thousand miles a year. I find the bicycle a great form of transportation to shop, take my recyclables to the recycling yard, visit my daughter, and ride to work. With the use of panniers and a Bob trailer there is very little I cannot do with my bicycles. They are also a great way to save money. The other side of this is that cycling is also fun and great exercise. Cycling is also my favorite way to vaction.
What is cycling to You? Fun, green, or both.
