All of my personal transport this winter has been on my mountain bike. It is a blast riding in the snow.
Cars pollute, waste massive amounts of natural resources, take up ridiculous amounts of space, and hurt or kill millions of people every year. I was hit by idiot drivers twice last year, and my back is still sore from the last crash.
When my kids are off on their own, I am going to move somewhere where I can get by without ever getting in an automobile. That is my vision of nirvana.
