Thanks for sharing this article.

I am one of those that commute via bike. My commute to work is 8 miles one way and I live within a mile or two from grocery stores so durning the warm months I hardly ever use my car.

I wish I could ride all year. Once October hits I usually have to put the bike away until around the end of March. If I had my choice I would ride all year round but the darkness combined with the cold and snow makes it hard. The last thing I need is a car diving to fast in the snow sliding and hitting me.

According to Australian epidemiologist Takemi Sugiyama, lead author of a recent study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, “Commuting is a relevant health behavior even for those who are sufficiently active in their leisure time.”
