This is definitely the ultimate ideal for people to go to work. The big question is: how can we convince people to start using their bikes when gas prices are low? It seems like not that many people care unless it’s hurting their pocket…
I also found this bamboo bike that can make “your ride” even more eco-friendly! http://www.calfeedesign.com/bamboo.htm

I think it just doesn’t occur to a lot of people to NOT drive, it’s too ubiquitous in our society…

Unfortunately, after moving to a different county than the one I work in I was unable to enjoy the benefits of the biking. So I’ve been trying to exercise fuel efficient driving techniques instead (I downloaded a bunch from sites like carfunfootprint.com and eartheasy, etc). You know that speeding is a good way to reduce your fuel efficiency (as well as a good way to get traffic tickets)? If you can’t do it for the cops, drive 55 for the environment (well, in the US, not sure what the kph would be).
