Giving up the car for a bike

Last week was "Bike to Work" week, and here's a story about a Wisconsin man deciding to not use any gas for 31 days.

From the story:

"I think just with the gas prices being so high, everybody complains about it but no one ever really does anything about it," LaFave said. "People continue to drive nonstop and not think about it, but I just wanted to take a stand and say, `I'm not gonna pay this much money for gas.'"

I read a few comments about this story from folks who've also changed their commute habits to biking, and many are saying once Day 31 hits, they bet Mr. LaFave won't want to switch back because he'll have discovered how great biking is for his wallet and his waistline!
