and I came to the conclusion that walking is better than riding a bike. sometimes.
It can be, but it takes f o r e v e r!
It's nice to go for walks sometimes though, I do it often around my neighborhood.

agree i walk home a couple of times,
its even better if your walking with
someone. but there are also days
when its good to ride home.

yeah, i still love to walk.
when i'm walking i always think about how i would be a mile away already, if i only had my bike.

Sometimes my friends and I go for a walk in a paceline.
(I always pull the most)

yeah it really depends on how far. Where I went, it was the perfect distance, I walked to the train, walked to my destination, walked back to the train, etc.
and I just was
the whole time. I made it a point to leave cell phone iPod, etc at home so that I could just be. and I liked it. a lot. you can really experience things around you. I've been down that street 1000 times and noticed things I had never seen before

one time I was walking with a group of people and as we were crossing a street, I totally yelled out "holes!" and pointed to a bunch of holes in the crosswalk. None of them ride, and I was laughing hysterically at myself. creature of habit

the original, folkier version of that song was better.
AM isn't as good as a punk band.

anyone else care to go?
did i mention it was FREE?

I commend your choice in walking. It's so fun sometimes! Running also is great utilization of legs. Biking might be in for the win on this website, but it doesn't always have to be. ok!? it's doesn't!! maybe it does... maybe it doesn't! no but "seriously" (<--also maybe not for this website) walking, bicycling and running is FANTAAAAAAAAAASTIC! Asssssppeshaly when it's every kind of weather outside. LET'S GO OUTSIDE. I WANT TO GO OUTSIDE. I'M JUMPING OUT OF MY WINDOW RIGHT NOW, I'M GOING TO WALK OUTSIDE ON MY BEE-SEE-KLET OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW. now

Last time I went to Europe I walked all day when I arrived at a city. From sun up to sun down. It was a great way to see the city.
It was a one way ticket to Europe too!

oh god I can't wait to do that!! walking through Europe...
walking, it's so human. There's so little activities these days that are so human as walking. Walking and sex. That's about it anymore. The rest of the time we're all technological with our cars and our cell phones and laptops and whatnot. Of course sex can get infiltrated with technology, too.......so I guess we are just left with walking.

@ Duderina....that was funny shit about calling out holes with a group while walking.

Walking's only good when you're doing it in either an abandoned fortification, or the Angeles Crest where it's all quiet and the sound of nature fills the air.
When you live in an area like I do, the sound of over-souped up vehicles tends to get old very quick.
That's when I hammer down with some relaxing tunes blocking out some DipNut's EFI'd 350.
