Ride a bike? You must be rich - Times Online

Ride a bike? You must be rich - Times Online: "From The Times September 21, 2007 Ride a bike? You must be rich Ben Webster, Transport Correspondent The richer people become the further they cycle, according to official figures overturning conventional wisdom that the bicycle is largely a poor man’s mode of transport. The richest fifth of the population cycle on average 2� times as far in a year as the poorest fifth. The Department for Transport’s National Travel Survey indicates that the poorest fifth, despite being five times less likely to have access to a car, are very unlikely to consider cycling as a solution to their transport needs. The London Cycling Campaign said that people on higher incomes tended to be better educated about the health benefits of cycling and more concerned with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Studies have shown that regular cyclists typically enjoy a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger, and those cycling regularly beyond their mid-thirties add two years to their life expectancy."

Boston Post Road - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boston Post Road - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Boston Post Road was a system of roads from New York City to Boston, Massachusetts, containing some of the first major highways in the United States. It began as a path to deliver the post using post riders (the first ride to lay out the Upper Post Road starting January 22, 1673), and developed into a wagon, or stage road in later colonial times. During the 19th century, pieces of the road were taken over and improved by turnpike companies. In the 1910s and 1920s, the Lower Post Road alignment (and realignments made to the route) was a National Auto Trail known as the Boston Post Road. Large sections of the various routes are still given the name Boston Post Road, much of it is now U.S. Route 1."

U.S. Route 7 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

U.S. Route 7 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Connecticut US 7 in Connecticut (also known as the Ethan Allen Highway) is mostly a surface road but has two short expressway sections in the Norwalk and Danbury areas. US 7 begins in Norwalk with a four-mile expressway to nearly the Wilton town line. There are three exits on this short section, signed as 'The Forty Third Infantry Division Memorial Highway'. Exit 1, just past Interstate 95 (the southern terminus) leads to the Central Norwalk Business District and US 1. Exit 2 leads to Route 123 which extends from US 1 in Norwalk to the New York State line, passing through the town of New Canaan. After Exit 2, the expressway reduces to four lanes from six. Exit 3 leads to Route 15 South. (known as the Merritt Parkway). This interchange was half built and only allows southbound access from the expressway—-northbound access is gained via CT Route 123 at Exit 2. The expressway section ends at Grist Mill Road in Norwalk, about a half mile past Exit 3"

Media Biz A ‘Heavy’ hitter in online video �

Media Biz A ‘Heavy’ hitter in online video �: "Enter the New York-based offices of Heavy - the digital media company that runs the popular young men’s online video site Heavy.com - and you’d think that the dot-com bust from a few years ago never happened. The two co-founders are wearing jeans. I’m offered Trail Mix while interviewing them. And the offices have not one, but two, arcade games in the lobby (Centipede and the Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga combo if you’re curious). But Heavy is not one of the scores of new Web 2.0 startups that cropped up after the dot-com meltdown and are now preaching that things are different this time around. The company, founded in 1999, survived the Internet bust and is now thriving thanks to a somewhat novel approach that not all online video companies are taking: the company actually is concerned more about selling ads than building a huge audience. “Anyone can start an online video site tomorrow and attract traffic. The tools are there. But you can attract an audience that matters? You need to be able to sell that audience,” said David Carson, one of Heavy’s two co-founders and co-CEOs"
