Riding rather than driving

I was inclined to drive a car yesterday to run a few errands.  We had temperatures in the 90's with high humidity.  Yet the drugstore and post office were only a few miles away.  I did the "ride thing" and enjoyed a reasonably fine bike ride, got my errands done and enjoyed the benefit fo exercise to boot.

It occurred to me that the warm weather and high humidity are compounded when more of us take to our cars and turn up our air conditioning. I'm sure glad the I chose to ride instead of drive yesterday.  Of course it helped my decision making considerably that we didn't have a car in the garage to drive anyway!
