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 live 26 miles away from work one way. I live thirteen miles away from the grocery store so bicycling is OUT of the question. I dont own a bicycle and I dont own a motorcycle.

Love to bike the shorter trips, lucky to have a well stocked reasonably close hardware large store nearby. About 1.5 mile is good exercise. Lucky again to have an in town and an out of town close by markets, close for biking, roughly 4 mile at the most each round trip.

Yes, I try to get at least two days in each week of biking to work. Found the local bike maps and check the weather more frequently to make the most of it to be safe and comfortable. Loving the trip in now and get a good laugh with the co-workers about it occasionally.

I bike often, did yesterday, so do my neighbors, even take the canine along for a good trot when the days are cooler. Anytime early or evening traffic becomes low volume.

Used too but lately used the vehicle. Now I'm out in the country-ish and biking to work would include going on the highway - not allowed - or riding through some of the more, let us say, negatively viewed neighborhoods.
Nope! Not that brave.
