Stop Driving, Start Pedaling; a response to GM

Bike vs. Car

Bike vs. Car

I own a motor vehicle, though certainly not a GM. I use it regularly, more than I’d care to. However, there’s no reason for any company or individual to imply that riding a bike is embarrassing in any way. Bicycles are way cooler than motor vehicles. Though the title of this post may imply that one should go car free, that’s not what I’m advocating. I advocate choosing the bicycle when possible, and taking steps towards making it easier to choose the bicycle more often. There are many benefits to riding a bicycle that a motor vehicle cannot afford. Find them using Google. Also, recent statistics show that the number of bicyclists is increasing. Sadly, there are many factors that hinder choosing the bicycle such as our car-centric culture/infrastructure, and unfortunately, the marketing efforts of GM and other companies/individuals that hate on the bicycle. This needs to stop!
