Americans buying more bikes than cars!

That's it really. From the Huffington Post via the Outside blog:

Americans bought more new bicycles than they did cars in the first quarter of 2009, suggesting that the economic recession may altering fundamental facets of the American lifestyle. Bicycle sales were still down 30% from last year, but eked out car sales by about 100,000 for a total of 2.6 million.

For one prominent American who really needs a new bike, see here (scroll down).
