Small Steps

It’s spring, and there are many more bikes on the road. Others want to start biking. But changing to any new mode of transportation is a big lifestyle change and takes time. Just like learning to drive:

Baby Steps

When I finally started biking, it was intimidating because I didn’t know “how” to do it…. just like all the other things I found intimidating.

But biking was one of those things I had to learn by doing.

Over time I learned how to adapt my lifestyle.

So if you are considering biking, you can’t change overnight. Break it down into small steps.

Perhaps one day you’ll wonder how you ever got around without a bicycle.

Yes! Absolutely love the last panel – simple, accurate, common-sense advice for cycling. I’ve been riding all my life (150K car miles displaced so far!), went through 1-4 when I was a kid, and have lived at “Love, Habit & Addiction” so long, I’m sometimes stumped when people ask me how to get there.

Small steps indeed. Nice work. Mine have gotten to big steps. 2 dedicated winter commuters, with studded tires and 2 fair weather commuters, plus 3 mountain bikes And a beach cruiser style tandem. My commute is 18 miles one way, 2-6 trips per week. I try to convince my suburban neighbors about biking to work. I tell them it is an hour by car, only 15 minutes longer by bike, and from Arlington center, I have bike paths the whole way to Brighton. They start to listen when I tell them about the gas savings of 2,000 miles per year.


Love it great set of panels

Or, as I put it (in my less helpful way): Bicycling and driving are both pains in the ass, it’s just that driving is the pain in the ass most people are used to. Once you are used to cycling, then driving as your main form of transportation starts to look like a huge pain in the ass you would never want again.


wow…yet more brilliance…outstanding

and I’m going to steal this 😉
