Now that we have an extra hour of daylight, besides biking to work I'm also biking home.
I have been biking to work just on the 3 days a week that Steve works at the RV place. Just having him not come pick me up will save about 35 miles a day on the truck... wear and tear, plus 2-3 gallons of diesel fuel, $3.95/gallon nowadays around here.
And if I bike both ways on the two days I took the truck... it comes out about the same, 32 miles a day.
It's free. It's green. It's also at jump to at least twice the biking I've been doing. That's the fly in the oatmeal. Maybe I should work up to it -- bike there and then, every other, day, have Steve come get me as before, maybe for the first week.
Especially since I've never fully recovered from that bug I had before the marathon. I'll think I'm well again for a few days and then I'm coughing again. Right now I'm in a "coughing" phase. But I feel better after I bike, so it must be opening up my airways. Another saving.... cheaper than Albuterol.
