Commuting by bicycle not only eliminates many of those expensive car fill-ups, it’s also one of the most patriotic things you can do, according to Ogden orthopedic surgeon Jeff Harrison.
“I think it’s a very patriotic thing to use your bike for transportation, to lessen our dependence on foreign oil,” Harrison said.
Granted, using a bike to get to work or for local errands may seem daunting at first.
Negative reasons spring to mind: It will take too much time. It’s too hard to ride all that way. It will make me all sweaty. There’s no place to put my bike.
