I find many things in life do not go as expected. For the last ten years I moved slowly but steadily towards pretty car light. I have several bikes and have gone from two cars, an SUV and a mid sized, to one small compact that gets 30 mpg. I put 8000 plus miles a year on bikes and about 5000 miles by car.

My my wife had a turn of bad health this year and my bike mileage went down to about 2000 miles. Dr. Appointments and other medical related issues made the car the best option for our needs.

While led it feels like I drive a lot more it has only added 1000 miles to my yearly average. I know this because I have to report my mileage to my insurance company to keep my discounted rate.

In my case the car is the best option because of time. Having my wife sitting on a bench waiting for a bus just isnít going to work.
