I’m reposting this from ClimbDFW. These guys are hanging in a portaledge on a big wall in Patagonian Chile — about as remote a place as you can find. The combination of the music and the scenery is mesmerizing to me.

Parking lots, Streets, traffic lights, freeways, and garages are all built around the car. If we had a penny for every time we had to drive around to find parking for our money pits we call cars we would be much wealthier. Or all the hours we've spent sitting at traffic lights; that time is not used for doing anything productive...waiting in itself helps people to be more patient. What if the world was built around the bicycle instead of the car? What would it look like? Could we fathom it? Would we feel vunerable or fearful to shed our protective covering? Would we be scared of the people around us? Would we be richer or poorer because of the loss of the marketplace built around the car? These questions are the ones that I will try to Get answered. meanwile I will ride my bike as much as I can and get healthier than the dude driving his Suv.
