Bikes are

As a form of transportation, walking is pretty underrated. Why spend an hour
to cover three miles when you could drive, bike, or bus it in less? Well, walking
is its own reward
. If Americans devoted half the time they currently waste watching
 to walking instead I think we'd see a health and cultural renaissance in the largely
overweight and brainwashed US of A. Walking puts one in touch with local surroundings
and--if the phone is off--one's own thoughts. Tonight Sarah and I walked from Fremont to
the Victory Lounge to hear Le Sang Song and The Intelligence play. It was dry and warm
and we hung scores of Bikes are Beautiful posters along the Burke-Gilman trail on the way.
