      In addition to that, there are potential health cost reductions from being in better physical condition.


      The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.

      I see at least 3 aspects to this;

      - Most people in the US eat too much anyway, so if they started
      bicycling, they would likely moderate their appetite and eat less.

      - If they did so, they could save money by not having a gym expense
      that they likely do not use anyway.

      - The cost of an extra side at a meal is insignificant to the
      $0.36/mile cost of operating the automobile.

      The whole point is; What it the big picture?
