Bear Market Brings Bike Boom

Bikes Beat the Bear Market Blues

While the Dow continues its free fall, the number of bikes on the streets in steadily increasing and bicycle manufactures such as Giant weather the storm quite well. Helped along by the high price of gas, bicycle transportation is taking on a higher degree of importance in Ann Arbor. If you live in downtown Ann Arbor and work at an area business, U of M hospital or attend the University of Michigan - bikes are the way to go. Driving through downtown from my home in north east Ann Arbor to my office on S. State, I am often passed by bikers comfortably pacing their way to their destination as I wait in traffic.
