Bicycling

however they aren't a viable option for travling long distances, and have rather limited storage. but for shorter trips they are very handy. i really ought to get one.

As far as efficiency though, if that's all we're considering, the quote is definately right.

Very true. I just thought it was appropriate, since as nightskyre and I recently started riding our bikes to work. You wouldn't believe how much less we're spending on our cars now that 1) our minimum mileage each week has dropped from 300-400 (on each car) down to about 150 (total) and 2) we no longer live in ghetto-high-insurance-prices Worcester. Seriously, we've been out of the city for 2 months, and our car insurance has dropped to 1/3 of what it was back in May.

By the way, have we ever met? I looked at your user page and WPI page, and while we have some friends in common, your face doesn't look familiar.

Megan. Alden Voices is where I know you from mostly. and SFS.

I felt the need to bemone the inability of the bike to get me to a job and hour away. a bit to far for it. it would way cut expenses if I could though.
