Apparently last week was Bike-to-Work Week, as promoted by the League of American Bicyclists. Bike-to-Work Day was on May 15th. Though I know a couple of people who bike to school, biking as a transportation to work or school seems to be uncommon, so I wonder how many people will actually participate. Biking is a good way to decrease the pollution levels and is beneficial to health as well, especially if it’s a long distance thing but with advancements such as cars, trains, and buses, it is seen less as a way for transportation but rather as just another activity. Combining it may be nice, like with this Bike-to-Work Week, except maybe for longer durations.   Personally, I can’t bike (don’t kill me for it) but I still think the whole idea is a nice one, but it also makes me wonder how many people will give up the luxury of bus/train/car for biking. Would you? There’s also the possible issues of distance, time restraints, and ability (like me who can’t even bike) that may hinder participation in this event… how would you propose these issues to be addressed?   – Vivian
