It's just about distance, it's also about isolation and whether or not there is commerce there.
Durham had a GDP of $44B in 2014. No way is that considered a suburb of anything.

Let's say you work 20 miles away. That's about 620 calories burned each direction. If you buy high quality power bars, pay about $1.60 per bar for 190 cal. You would need to eat 6.4 bars to make the round trip. That's $10.44 a day by bike.
For a car getting 20mpg's at today's fuel prices, thats less than $4 a day.
Thinking outside the box. I like that.

I think it's a very interesting topic, but I can't imagine it selling in the South.
