After another week of full-time bike commuting I think that I will take this off my goal list. I will have done it. I’m doing it now. It has become very easy for me and very natural. I don’t think “oh I could use the car” anymore, I simply just hop on my bike and go. It’s just as fast, practically. Especially if I’m downtown. I need to figure out how much gas $ I’m saving so I can feel good about my commuter bike purchase. I think that it will take several months of bike commuting before I will have paid for the bicycle itself, but here’s to progress and here’s to saving the earth, one bike ride at a time!

Now that I’ve been riding my bike consistently to work for just over 10 days or so, it seems that my perspective on travel has shifted. I now do not see my car as an option and I plan accordingly. It helps that my commute is pretty much the same in length whether I drive or bike. It is also good that when I ride my bike, I have a happier, more positive outlook than if I drove. Even though it is hot in the mornings already, it is worth it for the positive benefits. Not to mention the zero impact on the environment. I love it!!!!
I biked to work today, and I will tomorrow, too!
Tomorrow for Bike to Work day I’m going to ride to: One Texas Center, 505 Barton Springs Road for FREE breakfast and then to work! :)
I got a new bike. It is heavy and pretty. It’s nick-name is Brownie right now but I think that is a little too girlie and cutesy for how awesome and retro this bike is. Anyway, I rode it to work today. I only had to walk up 1 super steep hill. It was fun. I loved the feeling of the wind on my face.
