Car vs. Bicycle

Rob and Kurt Widmer of Widmer Brothers Brewing in Portland had a contest. Starting from the same location and using the same route, Rob rode his bike to work and Kurt drove his car. The winner was whoever got there first. Well, obviously, since I'm posting this- Rob won by 5 minutes! They also had another co-worker take lower traffic streets and she only arrived 2 minutes behind the car.

Folks, if it's less than 3 miles- a bike can do it just as fast. :)
