The other day I had an interesting conversation with someone leaving work at the same time as me.
First thing she said is "where's the helmet?"
to each their own but I don't feel that helmet use should be mandated, but I digress... we chatted for a few seconds (red light) and our conversation ended with her telling me that "I should be setting an example" as the light changed and she sped off leaving me thinking... "I already am".
As her overweight body in her spewing sedan sputtered into the distance........
Thought I'd share.
And on the conversion note - I have completed my first mandatory month of cycle commuting! I've been at it for several months now (since May I think) but I've always had the option to take the car. Well as of September 1 I no longer have that option so I can't exercise it.
During the month of September I estimate my savings at about $400. It would be $500 but I bought some things (pants) for commuting so I will deduct this from the savings.
