What I Believe: Chris Hoffmann local bike rider

LJS article

Many people driving cars, he says, behave differently than they do when walking or riding a bike.

He’s seen that change in himself, and he doesn’t like it. He hasn’t owned a car for a decade. When he borrows one or rents one for out-of-town trips, he becomes angrier, lazier. He notes how little he notices the people around him, the neighborhoods, the topography. He doesn’t feel the hills.

When he’s driving, he becomes angry at people driving too slow or too fast. He doesn’t like feeling that way.

So he bikes.
