    the only problem I have is I can take my mountain bike on the Metro but not a bus. Now pedaling nine miles isn't a problem, but when it is 100, not something I want to do and be soaked in sweat.

    I've called and email asking why and the response I get is it causes problems with space. Well people do you use the Metro, but not the buses that much, and I think that is cause parking at the Metro stations is free.

    Space is not a problem. If they'd change that I'd be about as happy as you can get. Our rail system is pretty new as those systems goes and it just kind of runs one line with no spurs off of it. So often where I want to go might not be near the stop. 2-3 miles. I walk it now, but a casual ride on my bike would just take a few minutes.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
