1 month anniversary!

So, I've celebrated my one month anniversary of using my bike regularly to get to work. With that change, I've got the following to report:

  • Over 200 miles on the bike. My truck averages about 16 mpg city, so 200 / 16 = 12.5 gallons to drive that distance. At $2.30 a gallon (conservative fuel cost), that means I've saved $28.75. Sweet...
  • With a change in my diet, taking my BP medicine regularly and adding the exercise - my blood pressure has dropped back into the normal range, and I've lost 12 pounds. (More need to go, no doubt...)
  • I feel better, have more energy.
Here's to a great February - happy riding, everyone...
