This is a question that comes up from time to time, especially when my
colleagues see the bike I ride to work and casually ask how long the
ride is, after which we often find out that I ride father to work than
they drive
so they get to scratch their heads and wonder if they might start
biking.... someday... (to be fair, one of my colleagues is now almost
daily using his bike in a way where he drives his pickup to a parking
lot 1 mile from work, then he bikes over and also goes to lunch on bike
and in the evening uses the combination bike and pickup again. One day
he'll become daring enough to take his bike the whole way ;-)

I wonder how many could have bypassed using a car altogether, and ridden
a bike or taken a bus.
