Raising gas prices is not always so bad….

Well right now I can only wish to see as many bikes on the streets as the above picture but I was pleasantly surprised at the increase of commuters I saw out on the streets today. I am not a big fan of the gas price increases but I have to say that I am happy to see more people riding their bikes because of it. On my short commute to work today I saw four other people on bikes today. That is a a new record for my commutes!

I was even happier to see another parent riding alongside their son to school on a bike today. I can only hope that the more often we ride with our kids that it will inspire other parents to leave their car in the garage and take a ride with the offspring.

Paying for gas sucks, and it sure is nice to see others catching on! I last heard gas prices will be in the realm of about $7 a gallon by end of the year and I am looking forward to seeing my streets filled with bicyclists! I am keeping hope alive!!! =D
