Top Ten Reasons
to Commute by Bike

10 Your health insurance is a company benefit and your increased health would equate to a loss by using your benefits less.
9 Its hard to smoke, put on make-up, shave, or talk on a cell phone when you’re cycling.

You won’t spend as much quality time sitting in your truly enjoyable car.

7 Your insurance agent is a great guy and you’d hate to stop paying car insurance premiums.
6 If too many people do it, gas stations and car lots will go out of business, adding to the unemployed.
5 The many options of what you can do with the money saved on gas, insurance, and maintenance, may cause minor dilemmas.
4 The natural high and energy rush you’ll feel daily will increase your performance at work, possibly leading to a promotion and better pay, further compounding reason number 5.
3 You’ll lose weight and new clothes are too darn expensive!
2 Your fitness level may cause you to outlive your friends and be lonely in your old age.

Its just too much trouble eating the extra food you need for energy.
