Driving a car is cheaper than riding a bicycle?

Calculate it yourself.

Well…if you forget about maintenance, insurance, parking, tickets…and your gas isn’t $4.00 a gallon or more, and you’re getting 42 miles/gallon, which you aren’t (well, until Obama’s new rules set in).

Still, even if they came out even, which they don’t, not even close…I’d rather eat all that Ben & Jerry’s and stillll be fit (save on health care, later on):

Here’s our version of the above. It’s worth keeping, if you love your bicycle.

    I like the concept but I'd power the bike with a healthier source of energy than ice cream. At 60+ years old, this works for me, I ride 9,000+ miles per year, weigh 135lbs and can finish a Century ride in much less than 5 hours.

  3. I located what I was searching for. wonderful article, thanks

    Is it true! I can't believe it that driving a car is cheaper than a bicycle. Near about a dream comes true it is that type of invention. If it is really true then all middle class family can maintain a car easily without any hesitation. For me this information are quite insufficient to implement it. I want to more details about it. If you can, then help me. I am continuing visit this site to get more details.

  5. Riding a car very easy but riding a car properly is not that much easy. Anyone can drive a car but according to me and from my own experience women can ride a car properly and in a comfortable manner than man. Most of the man is alcoholic in nature than woman. So while driving car they used to drink which causes accident and also affects many life. So women are better riders than man. Chevrolet is a branded company and also provides all the facilities in the cars. Also the models of Chevrolet are really comfortable to ride the car.
