Ride A Bike!
This is an inspiring video by John Burke, president of Trek bikes. I first came across this when I was contemplating putting a 1world2wheels widget on this blog...then I realized that I already do most of the things they suggest (not all, but most...I did drive my truck yesterday...first time in nearly 3 weeks). Then as I was watching the video, which I encourage you to do (if you don't already ride a bike this will probably make you get on one), I was thinking how Trek (along with many "mainstream" bikes) doesn't really carry a bike that I would want to ride, let alone purchase (though my winter bike--the mule--is an old Trek). Then I came across this bike, the Trek Transporter, designed by Gary Fisher...excellent. Another example of how I believe that longtails are the bikes of the future, or more specifically, the present.
