That's why most people in Holland ride bicycles as much as possible, as do I. They are healthier for it. I use my bicycles to hunt and fish with. I have a trailer to haul things in and a gun/bow/rod rack on the handlebars of one of the bikes. Within 20 miles (100 yards for trout fishing) I can hunt or fish for anything available in this state, except marine species. I ride to work every day (9 miles one-way). I use our vehicles only when absolutely necesary. I realize I'm lucky to be able to live in a place where I can be sort of self-sufficient, and not everyone has this option, but I do think that enough people could ride at least 2 days a week instead of driving, and that would be enough to effect our National Consumption. If the demand goes down...the price will come down.
