Cities Are Trying to End Pedestrian Deaths. New Data Suggests They're Making Progress.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do.

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.

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.
