Granted, many of the folks who work here are students getting work-study time. But... you can take that as good or bad. Good, because younger folks are getting out on their bikes more often, and that bodes well for the future. Bad, because people my age or older are still too lazy to get out of their gas guzzlers.
I was sort of amused by the fact that I had to fight for a parking space, actually... for the first time ever, it was a nice feeling!
In other news, I picked up a couple of new books on Amazon: How to Live Well Without Owning a Car: Save Money, Breathe Easier, and Get More Mileage Out of Life, and Asphalt Nation: How the Automobile Took Over America and How We Can Take It Back. I've started the first book and I'll talk more about it when I'm done. So far I like it - I'm on chapter two and the author, Chris Balish, has been chatting about the financial benefits of not owning a car. It's not a bike-specific book but I've glanced through it and biking most certainly is a big part of it.
I've also ordered Divorce Your Car from Amazon but it's coming in another shipment, for whatever bizarre reason.
