Yeah, the oddballs that drive to the gym and hunt for the closest spot are a bit weird.

I don't think its that black and white. I do exercise besides biking - I lift weights (full Olympic set in my basement - no need to drive anywhere). I can't combine that with my commute, and there is no way biking will accomplish the same thing

I'm sure we could debate this all day, I was just pointing out that biking isn't nearly as free as people like to think it is.
