If Only...

If only this were true...that bikes had the majority of the road...maybe eventually...after oil runs out or its cost becomes too prohibitive. This photo is from a book review written by bicycle advocate David Byrne, of Talking Heads fame. Click here if you want to read the review.

On a different yet similar note, I have a confession to make: Today I drove my truck on a trip that was less than a mile each way simply because it was raining and I was tired. I love the rain when I'm sitting on my front porch drinking wine or when I'm in my bed, but not when I'm riding a bike...snow, no problem, bundle up; heat, ditto, but bring a change of clothes...but rain, I don't know...and I'm dubious of motorist's ability to see me. Anyhow, there it is, so much for my Two Mile Challenge...I've come clean.
