Instead of driving, I ride an electric bicycle whenever I can. It gives me about the same amount of exercise I'd get if I were walking for the same length of time, but of course, I get where I'm going a lot sooner.
I like it because it doesn't pollute and my thigh muscles have never been stronger!
My bike has a basket. My husband can attach a trailer to his bike for hauling things like groceries.
Aside from the occasional whiff of diesel exhaust, we enjoy getting around without a car and hearing and seeing birds and animals we ordinarily would not if we drove to the store or to work.
Never miss a local story.
