After the relative discomfort of yesterday's rainy day, today's Dispatch gave me a bit of a boost. They had an article about the higher prices of gasoline and how it's going to affect drivers in the city.
For those of us enlightened enough to bike for our transportation... this is not an issue at all. Doesn't it feel great to have released ourselves from the slavery of the oil and automobile companies?
For those who may be reading this and thinking "I wish I could bike to work," well, you probably CAN. The key thing is to stop thinking of reasons you can't do and start figuring out ways that you CAN do it. You'll be better off for it - you'll be in better shape, you'll stop paying for gas and supporting oil executives and terrorists, and you'll help improve the rate of carbon emissions.
