Aint no MPG like infinity MPG :-P

I use my 28 speed bike for local trips whenever weather and carrying capacity permit, and I've made round trips faster than by car by not having to search and fight for a parking spot.
And I'm fit and slim and feel great.

No. I'd like to ride my bike for exercise, but I'm afraid some idiot would be driving behind me either texting or on their cellphone and run me over.

When I was a graduate student, I rode a bike everyday, but not any more. I wish I could bike again though.
