    I just rode my bike home from school, but I'm about to load my other one on my truck and hit some trails. Oh well.

    Challenge? I don't need no 'steenkeen' challenge! My truck's time to change oil hits long before the miles limit for years now. Oh what fun it is to ride when gas is more than 4 bucks!

    I overheard this comment during an event conducted in the rain. "What, stop the race on account of rain? We're not made out of sugar, they won't melt."

    I bike and bus everyday...so technically I am still using fuel. However my house is 38 miles away from where I work and the only connection between the two points is a interstae and they don't allow bikes on it.

    Sorry, I'll start my 45 mile round trip daily commute to and from work when the rain let's up. Just got over pneumonia from riding in this cold wet crap. Spin, spin, spin for me.

    No worries, mass transit still is far better than driving alone.

    Well you got me. I got a carpool going with 3 other guys I work with, and were going to cram into a prius. I'll beat this 35deg rain afterall. Ha Ha Ha!

    If I don't own a car, do I automatically win?

    Biked in yesterday, 14km round trip. Have to drive today because of an early meeting and needed errand running. Will cycle in again tomorrow.
