Transportation Miniseries


  • Pros
    • Good exercise
    • Correlated with increased happiness
    • Good for environment
    • Cheap
    • If more people bike, roads are safer
    • Easy to park
  • Cons
    • WAY slower than driving when destination is more than a mile or two
    • Tiring; only suitable for those physically capable of keeping it up
    • At the mercy of the weather
    • If city is not set up with bikes in mind, it can be quite dangerous
    • Quite often, people who commute by bike are not doing so by choice; they're just doing it until they can afford a car
