Ride a bike. Waaaa, it’s cold. Get a jacket! I got this jacket this winter and have never been happier. It is the best cycling jacket I have ever owned. Totally windproof and highly visible, if I can ride in the northwest in the winter, you can do it where you live, too.
As gas prices are increasing at astonishing rates I am riding my bike more and more. I stopped riding my bike to work when school started. I was using the excuse that it took too long. I ride to school every day. It is just over a mile, but it takes a lot less time than driving, looking and paying for parking, and getting to class. Parking is $3 a day at a community college!
