For all of you with a second at work today, check out the awesome trend on Twitter that has been building the past few days: #whyweride

There are some good explanations of the benefits of bicycles in a city, like "@velobration no parking, no gas, better view of nature, feel great, quads & glutes look awesome, fresh air."

Some others I liked:

    • "@dudeonabike: I ride my bike so my kids know that they can too."
    • "pdxtyler To get someplace.To feel rain on my face."
    • "@Area45 Because this Brooks isn't going to break itself in."

But what if you're faced with a more daunting problem than the morning commute?

"@GraphikDeziner: I ride because a bike is the most reliable means of escape from Zombies."
