Article in todays Freep reports that more and more Metro Detroiters are riding bikes to work. Not only are some bike shops having a hard time keeping bikes and equipment and accessories in stock, they’re reporting that natioinal distributors are low on stock, if not out entirely. Scooters, mopeds and motorcyle sales are up as well.
This is all to the good. Saves on gas, lessen this country’s dependancy on oil, reduces pollution, and makes you healthier.
Thanks to my wife, Colleen, for bringing this article to my attentiong. We are planning on going bike shopping for her this week. Although she works in Livonia and won’t bike commuting any time soon. But biking on the weekends an in the evening is gas-free fun. Plus, the bike is available for trip into downtown Birmingham for whatever.
