  1. It makes sense for many reasons why the bicycle should replace the car for smaller commutes. We should take note from such cities as Vancouver, Portland, or Copenhagen; cities that are bike friendly, or even pro-bikes. The seven seater bike in the article provides motivation and acts as a symbol for the changing bike culture. It is important to realize the implications of increasing bike usage for commuting. It is great for helping the environment and reduces the incidence of morbidity and mortality in a society as attributed to heart disease and the metabolic syndrome. In my work at OHIP Billing Agent, I can appreciate how biking can reduce the cost of socialized healthcare and government spending because of its health benefits.
