Bicycle / car. No brainer these days.

Hey - Biking really makes sense and you may find out that you actually love it!!!

Hey Karoliina, that's my bicycle (one of them anyway) in the photo. Believe me, I ride instead of drive every chance I get. My wife and I made one tank of gas last 7 1/2 weeks by walking and cycling instead of using our vehicle!

Walking is eeven better. Of course living on an island it is essier to get to places that way. Excellent composition.

Cleverly done! You are right. With these petrol prices we should use the bicycle, at least in the smaller European cities.

When is it going to stop?
It's about 4.32 a gallon.
Crazy! Since we live in such a small town, we walk a lot lately and have lost a few pounds too :-)

Shock horror, such cheap petrol still. Here in England it must be up to around $12 a gallon now.

Ouch!!!! We're at $1.36 here. Just think if our dollar was back at the 75 or 80 cent American the price of gas would be in the $2.00 range.
Nice photo.

Very timely and pretty shot.

Lots of bikes in my town all of the time -it's always been that way.
