Today kicked off Bike to Work Week and Friday is Bike to Work Day, so I will commute as much as the weather permits this week. With gas prices the way they are I am committing to doing as
many errands by bike as possible and got a good start last week. It's just a matter of thinking bike first instead of car, plus it's a cool thing to do and it's less hassle than driving.
I started off the day with a meeting that I biked to, then my work commute. I took my bike up to the shop to get the cycle computer checked out and boy did I feel dumb. When I towled off my bike I must have moved the unit that sends the signal. Duh! How the heck did I miss that? I fiddled with the pickup, I just never looked at the sending unit up close. Darn fenders are not ready yet. I want to get some proper photos of my bike and I'm impatient.
After the bike shop I made a trip to Independance Lake and made two laps and mapped it on map my ride, when I got home I found a cool new feature on the site, you can do a "fly-over" of your route, so you get to relive the trip in a couple of minutes from the comfort of your desktop. Too funny.
All together it only amounted to 6.97 miles for the day. So far I aim to shoot for 35 miles per week. A little later in the season I'll probably up that.
