    Lots of very interesting information!

    On the topic of parents, children and active lifestyle: materialism is often the deciding factor in home buying & choice of transportation. Family’s are then a slave to that big house (for 30 years!) and fancy car, and have to work long hours to keep them (instead of spending time with kids).
    Here’s hoping families start prioritizing what matters: their children.
    Glad to see someone out there helping to address the issues. (my grandparents lived in a dug out and had a wonderful life!)

    Its always refreshing to see positive and fun biking information because the irrational fears and comments are quite abundant in our society.
