I can't think offhand of any Toronto workbike operators available for hire, and could't find any listed on workbike.org. Does anyone have any suggestions on whom he might contact? -Jim --------------------- Joan...

  • I think installing catalitic converters on small engines is a good idea however, the parameters that are used to measure 'pollution' of these small engines does not include greenhouse gas emisions. Once greenhouse emisions and thier long term effect on life on this planet are added into the equation, you will find that the larger engines will almost always pollute more. Porsche is...

  • If Kamloops , for example, becomes a carfree city, then speeds of over 80 km/hr will be common place, especially if recumbents become more popular. The same for most other cities in the mountains. Ross ----- Original Message ----- From: "J.H.

  • The speeds that you suggest will often be way too slow. Speed limits will need to vary from 3km/hr in malls to 80km/hr on the freeway downhills. Ross ----- Original Message ----- From: "J.H.

  • I hear you. I too would prefer a voluntary reduction in car /fossil fuel use. But its not going to happen. An economic catastrophe, especially in gluttonous Canada and USA, is our only hope !
