Taking SmartTrips to the Afterlife

1 Comment

One great thing about making healthy and sustainable choices is that no matter what you know or are doing, there is always some creative and earnest mind finding a new avenue for improvement.

One such innovator is entreprenuer Wade Lind, who with his partner own the Sunset Hills Cemetery in Eugene, OR. Along with natural burials and a pet cemetery, they also offer a bicycle hearse.

I can think of lots of friends and acquaintances that would love for a group bike ride to celebrate their life, and maybe even a bike hearse to get them to their final resting spot.

And of course, we wish everyone a very long, very healthy, life. And what better way to ensure both of those things that getting more biking in 2010?

Of course you might want to wait until the temperature breaches 30 degrees.
