My younger sister of 6 years still lives at home WAY in the west end with our parents and she is quite dependent on her car. Not that there aren't other options... but change is hard for those of us living in this sprawling city with little to no access to straightforward bike routes. Also, depending on where you live in the city cycling from A to B can be challenging and time consuming.
But, we got her on the bike bandwagon and at least she's biking short distances to the gym or for quick grocery runs in the neighborhood. Her Dahon lives in her trunk (like mine) and she's starting to bring it over to my house so we can take off for adventures from my place.
It's a start!
