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.

Yes, did two days in a row. Mowed grass for the first time and while riding saw many others mowing also. I needed that exercise, and didn't take time to chat.

One of My friends still has what I call an errand bike, (older model) it has a luggage carrier, meaning old bike. He improvised and added a lock box to the carrier. Probably for grocery shopping items. There are three stores plus two hardware stores fairly close by. Side baskets on His bike noticed also.

A Robin built it's nest already in our soffit/downspout area, the past 5 years, same spot. The biking saves a bit of gasoline that I budget toward the mowing costs.

Used to bike to Waterfront Park festivities (Rose Festival, Brewer's Festival...) in Portland, OR. Avoided the traffic and parking hassles and made it easier to get around the spread out festivities.
