do I see neighbors on my street getting in their cars just to drive around the block only to by a loaf of bread?
are almost 2/3 of our society in the US overweight?
do people regularly have to commute in traffic for over and hour each way everyday?
do we continue our addiction to foreign oil?
do we ignore the signs of climate change?
Old habits are hard to break. We have become a society that values bigger, faster, and more and we've lost sight of the larger picture. What we are doing is simply not sustainable in the long term. Riding bikes certainly won't fix all of these problems by itself, but it can be an integral part to a better life for everyone.
