Each week, the EPA asks a question on its blog, Greenversations, to see how people around the country feel about a particular question and opens up the comments section to generate answers. Pretty standard Web 2.0 stuff, but this time the government tells you they're watching.

Although the EPA's short press release announcing this week's question (after the jump) doesn't mention the League of American Bicyclists' Bike-to-Work Week that is going on now, the agency's latest Blog Question of the Week fits perfectly with the event. The question is: Why Are You or Aren't You Biking to Work? Specifically:

Biking is healthy, it prevents air pollution, and it can even save you money (filled your tank recently?). So why aren't you biking to work? Need more bike paths? Different policies from your employer? Government sponsorship or policies? Or are you just a couch potato? If you ARE biking, tell us about your route and experiences!

As a guy who rides a bike for a lot of regular errands (post office, groceries, etc.), I make due without new and better bike paths. More would certainly be nice, but I find that cruising the residential streets is a good way around the issue. You?
