Why don’t more people bicycle commute?

Last night, I commuted home on my mountain bike, riding along the Milwaukee River. I stopped at the river’s edge to listen to it, all the while wondering why I was the only person on the path, why everyone else in Milwaukee was commuting in cars and buses to get wherever they need to go.

I’m not complaining–if everyone did wise up and commuted on bikes, I wouldn’t have moments like this, when the entire landscape is mine and mine alone.
