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.

I used to ride my 42 MPG motorcycle most days to work until I bought a 50 MPG Prius.

I haven't in a little while, but I did bike to work and home a few years ago. About 10 miles round trip. I worked 3-11:30PM, so the ride home was tricky, but kind of fun, not many drivers on the road. (Just had to be careful of those under the influence) And I saved on gas!!! I enjoyed it, and really didn't put many miles on the car.

I'm 61 and yes I both bike or walk when as you say carrying capacity isn't an issue. I've always done this and at my last yearly physical my doctor told me that I'm healthier than most people half my age :)
