<img width="100" height="120" align="left" src="" alt="">In case you have not read or heard about the New York Times article about the paper by Karl Ulrich and the rebuttal by Andrew Leonard; Leonard summaries Ulrich position as &quot;Cyclists live longer, thus consuming more energy, bad for environment. Result: Bikers lose all will to live.&quot; And Paul Higgins position as &quot;Cyclists aren't fat, thus lower healthcare costs, providing money for carbon abatement. Result: Bikers save the world.&quot;

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
