The great state of New Jersey will soon implement two more incentives you should ride a bicycle for fitness and transportation by imposing a 7% sales tax on health club memberships and parking lot fees. If you pay to park to visit your gym, that's a double whammy. These changes to New Jersey tax law will take effect October 1.
For the year-round cyclists in the northern hemisphere, winter will soon be on us. Save up to 50% on lights and fenders at Nashbar's Employee Pricing Sale.

That's ridiculous. We should be taxing "bads" such as parking, not "goods" such as health club participation.
