"You drive? :) "


Yeah...it's all six lane highway...at 40 mph and lots of traffic....and it's about 2.5 miles to get there.....

There's no bike rack there either.....

You don't drive on the streets around here during the week if you want to stay alive....

weekends are better....early in the morning there are bike clubs with 30-50 riders......

One of my friends from work did very very well in the dot com boom. He was an avid distance bike rider. He retired early at age 41 with an intercst type nest egg.

He was out riding on a Friday morning on one of his 20 mile rides on a nice rural 2 lane road. Along comes a school bus with one of these extended mirrors on the right hand side. A car was coming the other way. The mirror hit him square in the head. He was dead before he hit the ground. So it makes you think twice about riding a bike. We have bike paths here if you want to bike ride. But they don't go to the rec center unless you want to do a 12 mile round about....

I go for the exercise circuit.....at the gym....and that's it. I don't need more than that 20-25 min work out. That poops me out. So? I hop in the Prius and drive home.
