Day 1: June 23, 2012 Bought the new bike! Rode 7.19 miles and even bought groceries using the bike.
joie de vivre here only intermittantly
This is the best way to do it
Just use your bike for those short hops that you otherwise would have used a car: to the drug store, the post office, the bank, the library…
My work is close to my home so I am trying to bike to work every day. I had to return an item at a nearby mall today so I biked there. I can definitely bike to the library, bank, post offices, and some grocery stores. Thanks for the helpful advice.
