For those who are interested, I found out that you ALSO may be able to save a bit of money from your auto insurance company by letting them know that you cycle to work everyday. I was informed by my insurance company today that I can save $7.80 per YEAR because I cycle half the total commuting distance every day. The money I'm saving is only pocket change, but it is enough to get the attention of the guys at my office who live within 2 miles of work, but yet still remain dependent on their car.
Has anyone else found out that you can save more than just gas money from commuting to work by doing the same thing I've done? Let me know if your insurance company is willing to save you more money that I'm saving.
