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.

Lotta lazy ba******... uh, people here. Are your legs good for anything besides waddling between the kitchen, the sofa, and the bathroom?

I have bikes but will not bike through the part of town I drive through to get to work. I hate not being able to, since it's only 3.5 miles.
