Do you know, that's not a bad idea -- it simply never struck me (no pun intended with the word "struck")

"...the problem here is that you take your life into your hands if you ride a bike on the public roads..." Maybe you should use the right side instead of the left one as in pedestrian mode? :-) ;-)

The problem here is that there are almost zero sidewalks (very different to anywhere I've been in Europe)

Good idea about riding a bike, I do it all the time, even in our Motor City winters. BUT I try to leave all but the residential slow roads to the cars, I ride on the sidewalk as much as I can. In one of our nearby areas they tell me that bikes on the sidewalk are illegal, but I have not been challenged yet. I just do not like the odds for losing a bump between a 25 pound bike and a 3800 pound car, the energy transfer would be very unfavorable. Yes, I am aware that I can legally demand my right of way in the street, but just because the law says that I can do it does not make it any less stupid. I do see folks riding out in major roads and It seems to me to be a severe case of "more balls than brains", since I know how many motorcycles get hit, headlights on and everything, a guy on a bike would not stand a chance. No, I am not by any means fearful, but on the other side I am also not stupid.

"...when I walk to/from places the only "stuff" I seem to see is left-over fast food trash and pieces of tires..." Ah, but I look for the beauty in things :-)

"You see a lot more “stuff” when you are on foot." Not sure why, but when I walk to/from places the only "stuff" I seem to see is left-over fast food trash and pieces of tires. Perhaps I need to start looking up instead of looking down for peoples lost spare change....:-). I'm apparently missing quite a lot!

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
