    Cute. You aren't that guy who recommends just spinning a flat tire so the flat part is at the top of the wheel, too?

    There's a marker in Johannesburg with your name on it so I thought you might have put it there.

    I found a moderator and had them sticky it.

    The map site is pretty cool. I didn't even have to create an account to create the map.

    Now that we know Europe, Africa and Australia only have one bike commuter each, and at least one from the US is in the ocean, I wonder how bike shops are making any money.

    If you click on my marker, I explained that I'm trying out the flotation properties of fatbike tires. :)

    ...I added a real one too. Couldn't resist the wide open seas though.

    Gorgeous city shot!! Nevr made it to Munich when I was 'in-country' ('85-88), but the architecture takes me back.

    My last year there, I lived 'in the shadow' of the Marnheim Bridge, which the locals blew up during WWII because their nearby town was getting accidentally devastated by Allied bombers TRYING for the bridge!

    The map's filling in nicely. We're still missing quite a few "regulars" that I can think of off the top of my head in Alaska, Sweden, Calgary...

    ...NZ, more CO, FL and AZ.
    Yeah, I guess a lot of people aren`t too hip on putting that info online. But since the ones we know of have already put it out there (or we wouldn`t know about it), I dunno if it matters any more. Can`t knock anybody for not wanting to though, and what is there is still pretty cool.

    But obviously it's already online since we know where they all are, just sayin.

    I'm on now.

    I commute into and around Boston - Cambridge specifically. I'd guess that less than 50% of the people I work with drive to work. Some don't even have cars.

    A number of factors make this possible. The city limits the number of parking spaces an employer can provide. My employer offers cash incentives/reimbursements for alternative transportation. Boston has decent public transportation. (hmm... decent? maybe that's a stretch - but it's certainly functional!)

    Dalton - I used to commute from Ypsilanti into Ann Arbor in Michigan. 10 miles each way.

    I hear about life on the eastern seaboard, and it sounds like a different world to me! Max alowable parking spaces for an employer? Very cool concept, but it would never fly here!

    What`s the riding like in and around the Boston area? Lots of useable bikepaths to cool places? Would it be feasible to bike the tourist areas? It looks like my wife and I are going out next summer to visit my SIL who lives somewhere in the Boston metro area (so, probably between you and Straz- need to find out more specifically), and I might drag a bike with me to entertain myself while they`re doing the "girl" thing. Do you think biking the Concord-Lexington-Boston route would be a crazy traffic nightmare, better attempted on a tour bus?

    EDIT: :thumbsup:

    Cool! It`s hard to see where you line up with other marks across an ocean- you fall below Blockphi? If Perttime ever pees on the stump, he`ll be tough to beat.
