Well done! I'm applying for a new job that, if I get it, will be close enough to ride my bike.

Good luck with the job, Dan. I fantasize about riding my bike to work, but I'm light years from being able to pull that off. I'm building up to simpler rides, though -- neighborhood errands and such.

I have a friend who lives on the KY side of the riverfront and walks or rides her vespa everywhere she goes. A very European lifestyle. I find it more appealing all the time.

I'm an avid cyclist yet the notion that 1,000's of people should take to the roads on a bike as an alternative mode of transportation is just ridiculous.Ah yes,I can see I-71 clogged with people attempting to make it up the Kenwood Cut In the Hill now...sipping a cup of Starbucks while yacking on their BlueTooth.
Think of the crack-ups going down the hill when a light mist of rain is falling...a nightmare to contemplate.Please...taking the bike to work is fine if you're wearing casual clothes and are 2 miles away.In the real world it's more than impractical.

It seems like the culture is starting to change, if slowly.

Its frustrating that many Cincinnati townships are bike-unfriendly, with no sidewalks or bike lanes. Symmes Township is one of the worst places in the metro area for pedestrians.

I've commuted to work (in Blue Ash) on foot and on a bike. The biggest deterrent isn't the distance, or finding the extra time in my day. Rather, it is the idea of mingling with rush-hour traffic on secondary roads that leads me to step in my car.

I bought a 100 mpg scooter last spring to ride to work from Mt. Washington to downtown, but after analyzing the traffic and actually riding around on it, I realized I would be taking my life in my hands to commute on it.

So far, it gets me around Mt. Washington, but even there it's a little scary. If I lived downtown it would be a great transport -- but then, I could walk to work.

So I drive my 2007 Civic (which gets worse gas mileage than the 10-year old Accord I gave my daughter), and try to combine trips.

Oh, that I were young and fit enough to ride my bike to work!

Haha, excellent. Very clever, and nice drawing to boot. Have you recently switched to a different tool for shading, or have you just changed your technique?

Subtle cartoon, and quite effective.

"whatever happened to telecommuting"

If you're job can be done from home, it can be done from India. I don't think a lot of folks are willing to do that any more.

P.S. My bike commute will be 3 miles if I get the job. YEA!!!!
