I rode to work today with a bike provided at a minimal cost by FreeRide Montpelier. http://freeridemontpelier.org/ I am burning calories rather than fossil fuel ! What a concept! And it felt wonderful!!
FreeRide is a bike cooperative and their blog will link you to bike cooperatives across the world. http://freeridemp.wordpress.com/links/ As gas prices return to the highs of $4.00 per gallon it seems a good idea to make your next vehicle a bike. Visit them, learn and share them freely. It may be time for you to start a bike cooperative in your home town. Remember to say to yourself: "If it is going to be, it's up to me."
