Well, and then there is Baltimore. Here discussions about transit go like this: "Our transit system is terrible, the service is poor, buses are not on time or don't show up at all, trains are too few, modes are not connected, schedules can only be understood by insiders, in short: Transit is for losers."

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.
