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 when possible, but during the present season time it's not any fun with a wind chill factor added even at 45* F on a sunny day. I walk instead.
