Woot. One of my coworkers was proud yesterday that he set a new personal best bike-to-work time. So when I got up this morning, I decided I should do the same. And I did! My new record is 24:43, which 75 seconds less than my previous best. I frankly don’t know if I can improve… Continue reading new best bike to work time!
Just a few hours after posting that I broke my personal best bike-to-work speed, I also broke my personal best bike-to-home speed. And by quite a bit. Looking back at my previous blog posts on the topic, my previous best time from the office to our house was 32:51, set last year. This afternoon, despite… Continue reading yet another broken record
This morning, I broke my personal best bike to work time. Today was 25:58, which is 49 seconds better than my previous best of 26:47, set a couple months ago. I had a bit of good stoplight karma and low traffic because I left the house at 7 AM. Woot! Did I mention how much… Continue reading new bicycle commute time record
Since reading How to Live Well Without Owning a Car a few months ago, I made a serious effort to change my daily commuting habits. I bought an awesome new bike, and I’m really liking it a lot. Plus, my employer offers free bus passes to all employees, so I decided to get one of… Continue reading nearly car free commuting for 3+ months
This past Friday (June 22, 2007), I set new record bicycle commute times in both directions! My home-to-work ride was 27:46, better than my previous best time of 29:52 (set in October 2006). My work-to-home ride was 32:51, significantly better than my previous personal best of 36:13 (also set in October 2006). I’m impressed with… Continue reading biking to work
I rode my bike to work this morning for the first time of 2007. It wasn’t too fast of a ride, partly because I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to really push it, but more importantly because most of the ride was going right into the sun and I was having a hard time… Continue reading bike commute speed
I got my first ever sub-30 minute bike commute this morning. Well, since I moved to where I live now, at least. Last Friday, I set my personal best commute time from work to home at 36:13. This morning I rode from home to work in 29:52. The morning commute is easier, given that it’s… Continue reading commute speed
We’re getting a tax refund this year, plus I’m getting a bonus from my employer. So, I naturally have started spending some of this money before it’s even arrived! I’ve been on a buying spree the past week. First, I bought this unusual bicycle, called a Giant Revive. It’s billed as the “ultimate comfort bike”… Continue reading tax refund
