[B' Spokes: Very cool idea, now just to get our reps to do something like this.]
-> According to an Oct. 16th Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article, “Democrat State Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, who represents the city's south side, will hold walking office hours this weekend -- a chance to get some exercise and discuss issues of concern, she says. The ‘office hours’ will take place along the newly opened Kinnickinnic River Trail.
"‘I look forward to spending time this weekend walking the newly opened Kinnickinnic River Trail and talking with constituents of the 8th Assembly District about state issues that are important to them,’ she said in a news release.

"‘Our Latino community, in particular, is struggling with high diabetes and obesity and I recently resolved to get active for my own health. Hosting walking office hours is a great way to encourage my constituents to get active with me and let me know about the issues of concern to them at the state level,’ she said...”

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.
