    Idea! Alternative ??? Transportation

    Commuting Forum Description/subtext-- "Alternative Transportation."

    Define alternative: unusual, different, unconventional, out of the ordinary, marginal, unorthodox.

    Perhaps 'regular' commuters will never consider us otherwise, but in this little corner of the world at least, can we come up with a more hopeful adjective to describe this forum?

    how about "independent transportation" as we're free of dependency of fuel, parking or mass transit.

    Anyway, I'm an intermodal commuter, riding from 4 miles from home to the train, and then 5 blocks to work. It gets me there fresher than if I rode all the way. Going home I do a scenic loop to make a nice ride of, and also do errands on the way.

    Appropriately enough they've renamed my home railroad station. It's now an "Intermodal Transportation Hub" (Amtrak, commuter RR, buses, taxis, (and bikes). I hate bureaucratic nonsense (it's a RR station), but in this case they seem to have some insight.

    The key to solving any problem is to understand and address the underlying cause.

    adjectives are subjective.
    you add one, someone else will add another, next thing you know we're arguing over all mountain or xc or retro or freeriding or jra.

    Think of it as ALTERNATING your downstrokes from one pedal to the other.
    Feel better now?

    The fact of the matter is that most people commute by automoblie, bus, or whatever other kind of engine/motor driven means. The minority who make other choices really are using alternate transportation methods. Let em call it whatever they want- it doesn`t hurt anything and it makes us special
