[B' Spokes: this is what happens when the police are well connected with the cycling community... good safety advice that benefits all road users. And just in case you have missed MDOT's answer to this question 6. Can a driver cross a double-yellow line to pass a bike?" we have essentially the same thing but with no public announcement. This kind of information should not be top secret!]
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.
