I commute by bicycle 16 miles a day. I don't need to drive to the gym. I've never felt better.
No car payment, no insurance - change in your pocket!
Combine errands on the weekends.
One day a week: Take a driving "sabbath".
Hey it's a start - I wish everyone could experience the bicycle commute - it rocks, but I understand I live in a unique part of the U.S.
Tailored for 16 year old male: Dude, seriously your buddies might think you're a freak and make fun of you, but chicks dig the biker body and a man committed to a cause. You can dare to be different - you'll have to be more creative about dates, but that will make you far more romantic. If she drives, you can be her "starving artist, activist" boyfriend - which totally sets you apart from the guzzler crowd.
The lady that is interested in you for these reasons will likely be worth your time my man. Any fool can drive a truck. It takes a man to ride a bike.
Been there - if I knew then what I know now... Portland, OR.
