My bike is one of my main modes of transportation, even in this incredibly un bike friendly town I live in. I ride it everywhere, and almost everyday I get yelled at by some rednecks and almost get run over by douches in big trucks. Yeah, for most people a bike isnt their main mode of transportation but for a few of us it is. I could drive my car everywhere but thats wasteful and you get fat. Id rather bike and stay in shape and save money instead of buying gas.

I was also a bike messenger in downtown Houston for a summer, that was awesome. I nearly got doored one time but now whenever there are parked cars I always make sure to ride a good distance so that wont ever happen to me. I love my bikes, dont know what I would do without em.
