No Cars?

Friday, Feb 20: This morning at work a string of annoying events stuck with me into our lunch time ride. Since I was not in the best of moods when we started, for the first time, the traffic here annoyed me. Don't get me wrong it was a great ride (every ride is awesome) and the weather can't be beat, but today the traffic annoyed me. What if there were no cars? What if everyone traveled on foot, bicycle, or public transportation? What if no private cars & trucks were allowed and the only cars and trucks were either commercial for transport of goods, construction, or public transportation? I think the world would be a much better place. There certainly wouldn't be as many health issues and obese people all over the place. The smog problems would go away. My guess is that urban sprawl would be non-existent. Anyway it was just a thought. I'm looking forward to a good mountain bike ride today, after work (Saturday).

Bike: 1:36, 22 miles
Strength: 45 min, Focus on Core.

  1. Well said! Cars are a necessary evil, one that won't be going away too soon I'm afraid.
