An important milestone...

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to share an important milestone in my relatively short cycling presence (started out last summer by commuting to work).
As of this morning, I've managed to log 2005 klm (1246 miles) in 2012, commuting daily to and form work which is a little more than 10 miles.

That might not sound like much, but if you asked me last summer if I would follow through with commuting to work, and would be totally car free for over a year, I would put all my money on me quitting within a couple of months!

Way to go!!! Seriously that is an awesome accomplishment. I have yet to fully commit to commuting to work by bike EVERY day.
