    Kinda obvious. Sitting in a car is bad for you, go figure. A longer commute on a bike, quite opposite.

    A lot of people are just lazy buggers. They won't walk or bike no matter the distance. And lots of people don't like riding bikes, period. Which is why you have nearly everyone in a single occupant car.

    It's not a knowledge thing. It's a motivation thing.

    I'm hopeful that as ebikes improve, more people will try them They sure beat motor vehicles in terms of pollution and cost.

    Commuting's Hidden Cost

    I had a job one summer with a minimum 1hr commute each way. Depending on the worksite, I might be driving for 4 or more hours per day. I gained so much weight and got horribly out of shape that summer.

    It has taken me years to reverse those physical effects. I am getting there but I am not all the way there yet.

    I will not take a job more than 20mi away from where I live but I prefer less than 5.
