Today, I hit my goal (95%)
When I started commuting full time back in April, I set what I thought was a realistic goal of commuting to work 95% by bicycle. With my ride home today, I hit will reach 95%. What better day than Friday to cover my inner child in suds?
I keep a spreadsheet on my phone to track my work trips. I don't count neighborhood trips for haircuts, groceries, fun, or weekend distance rides. That's just too much work.
My original goal was to maintain 95% through October, but I've already made up my mind, bike, and clothing to go through the winter. Maybe I'll never have to "start up" again.
I can't attach the spreadsheet, but here are the highlights:
Avg weekly miles 94.875
Avg gas price $3.06
Avg weekly est gas savings $13.06 (based on 1996 Honda Accord I sold)
Total est gas savings $210.87
Total miles 1518
Nothing says "in good times and in bad" like a good pair of fenders
