Urbanite magazine is looking to set up a spirited, sassy, tit-for-tat
between an avid biker and an opinionated driver for an upcoming issue
on transportation. We're looking to have some fun, not get nasty. The
tit and tat don't have to be long -- think of a 500- to 800-word
essay, just a pithy story and some thoughts on navigating Baltimore's
roadways on your chosen set of wheels. Know anyone who could write
such a tit or tat? Maybe you know a rabid biker whose spouse or
significant other thinks he/ she is crazy? If so, send me an e-mail.
We'll talk. (Disclaimer: There's no money in this. Just a chance to
have some fun and get your name in the magazine.)
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.
