Five Good Reasons to Bike

1. I can eat two red velvet cupcakes a day and not be bulging out of my jeans
2. I can afford to buy two red velvet cupcakes a day with the $$ I save not taking CTA
3. I can leave dudes in my dust on bridges (read: the only hills in Chicago)
4. I can get there faster than bus or train
5. I can practice take pedestrian shortcuts through parks, dead-end streets, etc.

Saut Betsy.. I'm an American 22-y-o planning on moving to Paris but I am having trouble finding a way to be there legally. I don't have money to take French classes. I'm trying to find a cheap university to obtain a Student Visa. I read what you said about babysitting for 15 euro per hour which sounds great. If you could help me I'd be so thankful!
