I hear you, and raise you my weekly unsupported Saturday bicycle tours of 130-180 miles. They burn upwards of 15,000 calories, and I have to keep slamming down food and water in order to not waste away, or even pass out while riding as I did one time. Also, I don't have a car, so I get around by bicycle when commuting and running errands.

And people tour on Bromptons. I can load a lot more than expected on mine and it still handles pretty well with more than 40 pounds on its racks, including on slow hill climbs. I don't own a car, but a Brompton is really nice for air travel: I can fold it up, put it in its back, and put it into checked baggage with no extra fees. Once at the destination airport, I can unfold it and ride away without having to deal with trains, buses, or taxis. It does fit quite well in those, too.

As of next Thursday, UNIX will be flushed in favor of TOPS-10. Please update your programs.
