Gasoline is running at $1.10 / litre or $5.00 / gallon right now but when you need to fill up the bike a good place to get some high octane fuel is our local Budapest Delicatessen, they are well known for their excellent sausages, smoked meats, and have the best bacon in the city.
But this takes bacon to a whole new level…
Comparatively, the bicycle gets much better mileage than our car as it will go farther on $5.00 worth of deep fried bacon than the car will on a gallon of fuel and contrary to popular belief, this will also keep you trim and fit (you should see my bacon belly) and there is less chance of developing road rage.
The ride of choice here is my “new” 2002 bike E semi – recumbent which I picked up in order to see if the laid back position would help with my back and hip issues and so far it has been very good.
I can’t run anymore (I hate falling down) but riding the ‘bent feels similar in that it is using more of those muscles without putting stress on my lower back and hip.
