i really want a bicycle

I was perusing my usual daily sites to catch up on news, food, and sartorialism, when I came across bicycles (yet again).

The only exceptions are major metropolitan regions, and even then, one must be in the center of it all (i.e. – flat cities) to really benefit from this mode of transportation. Throughout much of the rest of the world, cycling is the defacto way of getting around, and everyone wants to look good doing it. If only I moved closer to DC …
