Forget Your Bike and Use Park City Taxi (When Appropriate)

Sometimes it becomes necessary to put aside the bike and call a Park City taxi to take you where you need to go. This is especially true when you are lacking the specific bike park you need to make your bike functional. But there are other situations when a taxi is a more appropriate form of transportation than would be a bicycle. For example if there are gale force winds and driving rain, probably a taxi would be a better form of transportation. Also, if there is a foot of snow on the ground (even if the roads have been plowed) I would still opt for a taxi over riding my bike and so should you (gentle reader).


There are many advantages as to making use of a taxi as opposed to making use of a bike to get you from where you are to where you want to be. The first and most obvious advantage is that taking a taxi requires significantly less effort than does riding a bike. Now some people opt to use a bike specifically because it does require effort. This is sometimes referred to as physical exercise and physical exercise has been shown to promote positive physical and mental health effects.

The second and not quite so obvious advantage of making use of a taxi over a bicycle as a mode of transportation is that it is a potentially safer mode of transportation. Now we all know that riding in a motor vehicle is not the safest mode of transportation. This is evidenced by the many injuries and deaths that occur on the highways every day. However, when the weather is bad a riding in a car can prove to be safer than riding a bicycle.
