Even on days like these when you can see, smell and even taste the pollution, you can hardly notice any difference in the use of motorized vehicles. This morning I saw two 10 year olds brought to school by car. And their school is less then 2 km away! Yes, it is possible to leave your car unused and take a bike, sledge or your walking boots instead!!!
It’s interesting to see how little time you loose in the snow by bike. In this weather it takes me 50-55 minutes to cycle to work, instead of 35-45 minutes by racing bike in good conditions. The car users I speak to see their traveling time doubled on some days! Amazing things those simple two wheelers!
