Commuters drive cars. Look around, the vast majority of all cars have one person in them. Getting an average of 23 miles to the gallon (thats the average mileage of all new cars) is pretty sad when one can get 40+++ on a motorcycle or scooter and on a bicycle the average person can go 20 miles on 7 hardboiled eggs.
Riding an open air two wheeled vehicle keeps a person in contact with the environment, the smells, the sights, the temperature changes, etc. Awareness and mindfulness go up dramatically. Riding a bike or motorcycle also makes a person more aware of others, as their actions may be fatal, so every decision and interaction matters. Cars dull the senses and make us less responsible and engaged.
Parking is one of every growing community's biggest problems. Remove a car that commuted one person and put 4 motorcycles or 5 scooters or 20 Bicycles. Parking problem solved.
Wanna help change the world? Here is something simple anyone can do right now. Pick your two wheels of choice and start replacing your commuting habits with choices that make more sense for all of us. If you can, get rid of your car and go two wheels only. I am working on doing this right now and the prospect is very exciting.
Talk soon, and peace,
