Oscar went in head-first. He turned in his lease and didn't look back. I thought he was going to buy the first cheap car on the market... Three months later he still pedals everywhere he goes!
What are the benefits of commuting? Saving MONEY! Gas, oil change, car insurance, car wash....
The benefits are more than just that. Ask Oscar what the benefits are for him, and the answer is: "I Ride FASTER."
What better way to train than to have to get places on time. Maybe it's too much to go cold turkey, but you can still do a small part by going to work one or two days a week on your bike.
