Last week I had a landscape gardener do a bit of bush trimming. I then had to pay him, but he said anytime. I rode to his house tonight to pay him, and he was shocked to hear a) I had ridden 11 miles to get to his house, b) I was going to ride 11 more to get home, and c) I didn't want to waste fuel driving a car (and costing more money) when I could happily and safely do the same journey by bike.
We have a hard core of bikers in this country, but given the state of the economy, it won't be long before more people wake up to the wastefulness of today's society, and make some changes in their lives.
