Anyway, I was pretending that the gravel road didn't exist and was thinking of all the other reasons I could use to avoid the bike commute. The biggest one was sweat. How will I look OK in business attire if I'm riding my bike? My hair will most definitely flatten under my helmet and I'll have to bring spare clothes to change into and I won't smell nearly as fresh as a daisy.
This morning I was reading blogs on my Bloglines Reader (I still haven't checked the Google reader out yet) and found a link to Cycle Chic. 35% of Copenhagen commuters bike to work. I think that's fantastic - think of how many traffic jams could be avoided! And maybe we'd all be thinner too - I like that idea.
I see a conspicuous absence of helmets, though. I wonder what the safety stats are. I think the helmet, more than the spandex, is what regular people have the most aversion to when they think about biking.
