    I love my bicycle and often use it to get to and from work. I think that people are too used to driving around in cars and using public transport, if they got up off their butts and rode their bikes not only would the air be less polluted, but people would be far healthier.

      You ride with your kids! It's so much easier than you think! Also, it's been proven over and over that biking within city limits is often as fast or sometimes faster on a bike (yes, even obeying traffic laws). We are a two-kid, no-car family and have rarely had trouble getting where we need to go. It might take a little extra planning but the benefits are so worth it!

    Thanks, but why so dismissive about subway and weather-related replacement for cycling?

    NYC cyclists know that riding a bike can keep you warmer and healthier than the walking (freezing) plus subway-riding (overheated) journey, and if the roads are plowed and salted, it is as safe as normal.

    Why not share some (shopping) advice for cold-weather cycling? Really, compared to what you need for walking, all it means is an extra emphasis on wind protection, and good lights that many need to add to a bike.

    I agree the bicycle is an awesome tool. Ever since I learned to ride as a young boy I associated the bike with freedom, fun and friendship. I still do. My grandfather was a rancher but always kept a bike around and rode it into his 70s. My dad works on airports and likes having a fold up bike around that he can take on his plane.
