One Less Car is proud to announce that we're the first organization to have the Maryland Department of Transportation's new bicycle safety video, "Competence & Confidence: A Bicycling Guide for Adults", online and fully accessible. MDOT received a lot of input from the bicycling community while putting it together and we think it's a great resource for people who want to be more effective and safer cyclists. It also has some sobering information on our state's relatively high rate of bicycling-related injuries. Take a look by clicking here. [Note: If you want a copy of the video on DVD contact Michael Jackson firstname.lastname@example.org 410-865-1237.]
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. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) 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.
