This season I hope to ride my bicycle to work and back 30 times. I’m not a hard core rider. I will only head out if the morning temperature is over 50F/10C. This morning marks the second trip in, I also biked last Friday. If I bicycle 30 times I will rack up over 400 miles. That’s 400 miles, or roughly 20 gallons of gas which will save around $70 in fuel costs, more likely, however, since I often bus in, it will save about $120 worth of bus fare. Add in some exercise and it’s not a bad deal at all.
The last article I read this morning before leaving for work was from Minnesota Public Radio and dealt with a bicycle summit on improving bike safety. Not mentioned as one of the ways to improve safety was, ‘do not take self-portraits while bicycling’. It should be for it’s not as easy as I thought. This isn’t a great picture, but since I was able to frame in my head and have no bats in the cave I’ll go with it.
I’ve created some new bicycling-related categories for the blog and will be using these, hopefully 30 days, to get me closer to 365.
