      Bicycling - Part of the Solution to Rising Energy Prices

      Experts expect ever rising energy prices caused by declining oil
      production. Global oil production will peak soon, if it hasn't
      already, and then decline, they say. Is peak oil a crisis or an
      opportunity? Can we thrive by switching to more energy techniques,
      for example, bicycle commuting?

      Peter Wang will tell how and why he commutes by bicycle in a talk to
      Houston Peak Oil Progressives on Sunday, December 11 at West Gray
      Cafe, 415 West Gray. "Bicycling is not just sport but transport"
      says Peter Wang.

      Peter is a Professional Geoscientist and volunteers for Bike Houston
      www.bikehouston.org. He commutes 25 miles to work from his suburban
      home in Copperfield. He regularly bicycles the entire distance
      because it makes him feel healthier. He sometimes rides ten miles
      to the bus Park and Ride and folds his bike to take it onto the
      bus. When bicycling in traffic, he recommends folks use a rear view
      mirror on their helmet, wear florescent, reflective clothing and, for
      night riding, hang on their bike, front and rear, bright blinking
      lights. To help folks learn to ride in traffic, he recently
      earned his bicycling instructor certification. Peter attends local
      government road planning meetings to advocate for
      bicyclists. Contact Peter at pwang01@... For information
