High Gas Price Silver Lining -- People Are Hopping Aboard The Bicycle Train

Great letter to the editor in today's St. Pete Times:

Try Bicycle Fridays

Remember many years ago when the offer to employees was made regarding jeans? It was called "Dress Down Friday."

Now that we have such an issue with the cost of gasoline, diesel fuel and oil, it would be a great idea if we could encourage our employees at all levels throughout the entire country, at all companies, small and large, to have "Bicycle Friday." This could reduce gasoline commuting costs by 20 percent, give employees the opportunity to get their daily exercise and create a healthier environment, as well as reduce emissions.

Tip of the helmet to Chip Haynes for sending this one across.
