I'm looking around at some of the possible routes I can take up to my school. Since my bike recently broke , I want to cut back on the costs that I incur driving to school by riding instead (using the old bike one of my parents used to use. Slightly humiliating since it's supposed to be a female bike, but viable.)
The way I usually drive, it's 15 miles up (Rounded.) However, if I were to ride instead, I could shave a mile off taking an alternative route and cut it down to about 13.7 miles.
This is where it gets tricky. About mid-way (6.5 miles miles), there's a bus stop for the CCT system in Powder Springs. A fare one-way costs about $1.50, and I would have to take it both ways (seeing as I don't have the luxury of carpooling.)
So, my question is - is 14 miles for 3$ on the bus worth it? I understand that one might say it's for 28 miles, seeing as I ride part of the way, but I'm curious if I should just keep riding on the crappy bike, or just take the break and ride the bus. This also allots time for studying in the morning, if I want - or just to play a PSP in laziness.
