Choosing a Bicycle Over a 2008 VW Jetta

Gregory Paul Johnson > Journal

Yesterday, I was given a sporty blue 2008 VW Jetta to drive while my 1994 Volvo 850 Turbo was in the shop for repairs. I took some time to write up a review of the 2008 VW Jetta. The car is due back tomorrow.

This morning I decided to leave the Jetta parked at home and ride my new Diamondback Insight 1 bicycle instead. Coming to that decision made me realize how much I really love commuting by bicycle. Today would have been the ideal opportunity to make use of the sporty new Jetta. Yet the pleasure of riding and breathing the fresh air won out.
