Biking to Work

Bike

Today was Day 1 of biking to work. I had previously mentioned that I wanted to do something to supercharge my savings, and the most logical thing for me to do was to start using my road bike more. The weather out here in Northern California is starting to improve, and today was an especially nice day. Hopefully I can keep this up throughout the summer. I’m probably biking about 6 miles each way, or 12 miles total.

If I can reduce my time at the pump to once a month, that’ll be a huge victory in my book. Well, so far so good! The quest to save 80% net income each month continues!

    Good choice! Biking to work will really change your outlook. It’s nice to ride in the morning and it really reduced my stress level at night. The benefits seem limitless and best of all its fun!

      Kechi,

      I totally agree with you! In fact, I remember reading your post awhile back when you first decided to start biking to work, which really inspired me to start doing so this year. Even though I’ve only been doing it for a week, I can already feel the difference. It really does wonders in reducing stress and I find myself not need coffee or tea during the mid-afternoon. Plus, the savings on gas is an added bonus. I might only need to fill up once a month now!

      Cheers!
