Michigan's Governor Bikes to Work

Leading by example, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm rides her bike 3 miles to work each day. The Detroit Free Press reports:
Granted, Granholm's three-mile commute isn't exactly a grueling workout. But most of us make plenty of short trips - to the dry cleaners, or the local supermarket/convenience store, or the movie rental place - that we could probably reach easily on a bike. Or walk to, for that matter.

It'd save a little gas, and it might add a few calories to our daily workout. It'd cut down just a bit on our personal smog emissions. But more importantly, it'd contribute to giving us all a more healthy, active lifestyle - one fueled by the recognition that our legs can, in fact, take us to meaningful places.
Kudos to Governor Granholm.

I would love to bike to work. I have tried it a few times, but it's scary! (I live in the Atlanta area, it's not very bike-friendly).
