If you've followed my blog for awhile, you may remember that I purchased a bike off Craigslist last Summer. I gave it a good fix up and now she works great! So, with my bike and short commute, I decided to start biking to work rather than driving. Today was the first day that there wasn't snow/rain in the forecast so I felt as though I could give it a try. Thankfully, while the roads to work are busy, they are wide, so I felt pretty comfortable with the cars around me. All in all, a pretty good experience that i'd do again!
I'm excited to keep biking to work as much as I can and am going to start to look for other ways to commute rather than taking my car (I can walk as well, but that would require getting up earlier ;) ). I also want to look at other ways that I can decrease my carbon footprint.
