This is great advice. It is impressive to look at the general shape of people – even middle aged and older folks – in countries with high levels of active transportation (walking and biking). You don’t see the levels of obesity that we have in the US.
I agree that regular commuting is a wonderful way to get people to find a regular half hour or hour in their day for bikes, but is is very difficult to get people to try. I find a lot of people are convinced it is too dangerous to attempt, so they immediately block it out.
100% agreed. I commute about 7.5 miles each way to work. Since I’ve started, my mind has been so much sharper at work. I am more productive, and generally in a better mood.
