Bike Crazy Dutch

Business Week has a new article - Bike-Crazy Dutch cycling further which highlights the fact that in the last five years, the average dutch citizen has cycled 10% further. This averages to 1.5 miles per person per day in 2006. Wow! What would America look like if everyone cycled 1.5 miles per day? What an impact we would have if people stopped driving their cars for a 1.5 mile trip each day. Averaged out, this would have a tremendous impact on our fossil fuel use, it would increase our national security, clean our air, and slim people down. Oh Yeah, people would probably be happier all around. Something to dream for...
