-> NHTSA’s 2015 Rural/Urban Comparison of Traffic Fatalities fact sheet reports that while 19% of the US population lives in rural areas, 22% of fatal pedestrian crashes with motorists occurred in rural areas, and 26% of fatal bicyclist crashes with motorists occurred in rural areas. These involved 1,160 pedestrians killed and 214 bicyclists killed. http://bit.ly/2qPpRR2

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.
