Bicycle is not an option for all of us, I understand that, so DEMAND public transport (Train/Electric Bus/Tram/Subway) if there isn't any where You live!

My girlfriend is a dedicated bike rider. She rides to work if it's raining, snowing, or freezing. She calls cars coffins. Me? I am terrified of traffic & I am always cold but I use public trans.

Legs, either circulatory , ambulatory or attached to blade wheels. Any of those should help avoid eventually being in a position of having to use wheels on chairs.

Walking would probably be the best, in all honesty.

Doesn't this depend on where you are at?

My climate does't allow for cycling year-round, except for the most hard-core enthusiasts, but weather permitting, I cycle to work as much as possible for nearly nine months of the year. It's about 45 minutes/13 km each way, so it keeps me in shape, saves me a lot of money on gas, and reduces air pollution. I also try to do most of my errands, i.e. grocery shopping, the same way.

Obviously, if you live too far away from your place of work, it's not an option, but if you do live close by, give it a try. Too many people have been conditioned to believe that a bicycle is a child's toy or that cycling is simply a recreational activity. Once you "grow up", an adult uses a car to get around. We need to break out of that mindset and start to see the bicycle as a viable transportation option, not to be ridiculed, but admired.
