I usually get around 5,000 - 6,000 miles a year on my bike(s) and a about
10,000 miles on my car. I have ridden my bike in places in Dallas that I
wouldn't drive my car.

  For us it is a boggy walk of over an hour to the nearest grocers, or 2hrs
along a road, as I live in a village without a shop. The buses are
infrequent

  But seriously gas-guzzlers including 4X4 should be curtailed. Most people
here who have 4x4 could do just as well with a car which would use 50 to 66%
of the fuel.

  Last week I bought petrol for 99.9p a litre which is 4 a mini gallon or
about $7

        Will we come to that.

        I will now get on my bike

        GRM: Having lived in both the UK and the US, the US is not
structured the same as the UK. I could walk to the nearest grocery story (4
aisles of stuff) in about 5 minutes in Peterculter. But if I want to walk to
the nearest grocery store in the US it is a 40 minute walk
    .. or a 10 minute bike ride!

    OK it's not going to solve the world's fuel crisis, but one thing I do
have in common with Michael is apparently being an evangelical cyclist. (In
both senses.)
