    Broke My Old Record

    I had to ride through a rain storm to do it, but today marks my 24th consecutive work day I've commuted by bicycle. My previous record was 23 days set back in November of 2009.

    The last few years saw a lot going on in my personal life that necessitated driving (had to take my son to school, run errands at lunch, be somewhere across town by 5:30 PM, etc.) When things started to settle down my habits had changed. I had gotten out of my "ride first" mentality and while I was still commuting by bicycle it had dropped to 2-3 days per week on average.

    After my son's baseball season ended at the end of June I decided there were no more excuses and it was time to get serious about commuting again. The last day I drove to work was June 18th.

    Now that I've set a new record I'm going to see how long I can extend this streak.

    Got to celebrate the small victories when they happen.

    that is awesome!~

    i only drove to work 7 times last month. I was showing my wife my account on the national bike challenge and she was blown away. I then showed her this month and it was very depressing. THUNDERSTORMS are driving me crazy.
