Real Men Ride Bikes

From Canada's leading independent online newsmagazine (how does one earn such a designation?) Straight Goods: Real Men Ride Bikes

Benefits? There could be enormous benefits of aggressively promoting bike transit as part of Canada's transportation picture. More people on bikes and using shared or public transportation means less fossil fuel use, less pollution, and more healthy people who happen to be a bit happier too because of all the exercise and social contact. The economic benefits are many: helping family budgets, jobs building infrastructure, jobs in public transportation, lower health care costs, and reduced national dependence on oil ??? other than chain oil.

I just want to say that I've been using the same little bottle of chain oil for at least the last four years. And it's not empty yet.
