A programme launched in Buenos Aires three years ago to encourage the use of bicycles has already brought results: the use of this environment-friendly means of transport has increased fivefold in the Argentine capital.

It is good to see more and more jurisdictions encouraging cycling as part of their transportation strategy. Cycling to work keeps you in shape, saves a lot of money on gas, and reduces air pollution.

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.

Thanks Cal!

I've seen cities where people can "borrow" bikes.....returning them to a public rack when they're done.

I don't like bikes but if they want to close down the roads and streets to put in horses I would love it.
