So, Andy, you are suggesting that I give up my pleasant, 7 mile bicycle commute, incurring over 40k in RE and relocation costs, so I can move to a neighborhood I don’t like within a mile of work for the couple of working years before I retire and move back to Washington State for good. How is this sensible again other than my ride to the gym will get longer and I’ll have to go there to make up for a commute not much longer than the walk in from the bike rack?
Steve, individual mileage may vary. But, you might look for a one mile solution kinda place once you move back to Washington, no?
Andy, how would you rate Springfield as a one mile solution kinda town?
Everybody, Danny Macaskill has a new video out:
Steve… Of course not — and you know that 😉 You’re willing to make a 7-mile ride. I wonder if I would be.
Michael… Springfield is already a great place to ride a bicycle as basic transportation. Now if we could just figure out a way to let people know. As for the 1-MS, people in the urban core are set. Everything is close to everything else. The suburban areas are a different matter, as they are most places.
