Bike Commuting When You Can't Bike Commute

Bike babes by kalevkevad

Bike Commuting is the new thing and it helps the environment and the shape of our bodies but let's face it some people out there in America are facing 45 plus minute commutes. So how do you get past the idea of a 45 plus minute commute by car on your bike. Well, here's how if you live in a high traffic place the bike may actually be faster so the 45 minutes may cut it down to like only 30 minutes. What's that you say I can commute faster by bike than car? Yes, it can be done if you live in a high traffic city it can be done. Now the other extreme to that is you travel 45 minutes and it's all highway 65 miles an hour. There is no way you are going to be able to cut your commute by cycling to work and back. This is also for the person who just has that job where you can't just be sweaty for the day or your boss just isn't up with the times and doesn't have a shower installed at work yet. We will have to work on that. So for whatever reason you cannot commute on your bike so here is a plan for you.  So what are you to do. Simple you don't bicycle commute. You simply look at a google map and draw a 5 mile radius around your house and simply ride your bike to anything you have to do in that circle. It really makes it pretty simple. You get to save a lot on gas and you get to stay in a lot better shape without going to the gym. Basically you skip the bicycle commute but every other trip becomes a bicycle trip. Pretty simple really. It will kind of make you consider do you really need to go clear across town for that item or can you get it closer to home.  I think this is a great idea. What do you all think about it?
