    RE: the Bike to Work Day video… you can’t be serious? Endless shots of the same young white girl aimlessly riding around some old airplanes, down country roads, and to the beach? Is this person supposed to be biking to work? Carrying nothing, Smiling incessantly. What’s so funny? That you don’t have to go to work? And where is everybody? Does this person only ride where there are no other bikes? Have all the sponsors listed at the end actually seen this piece of meaningless fluff?

    Guess it’s kinda like the car ads that always show cars driving through such wondrous scenery when the daily reality is usually much different.

    Though I think a well-produced video showing people biking to work in the city could easily be made attractive and glamorous…especially because it really is much more fun biking in the city than driving.
