If more lanes were available, 33 percent said they would commute by bike more often, the study found. When bike lanes were added to Valencia Street - a key corridor for bikers cutting through town- bike riding there went up 144 percent in the first year, Ms. Shahum says.
&quot;Ten years ago I was working too hard and started riding my bike to the office on weekends to get exercise,&quot; says Jean Fraser, a married mother of two and CEO of San Francisco Health Plan. &quot;I found it was cheaper, faster, and more fun than driving or riding the bus.&quot;

Commuting this way saves her $250 a month in parking fees and $2,000 a year on gas, Ms. Fraser says.

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.
