1st week of commuting

Well I have started to commute one-way from work to home this week. I jumped on the “expense gas” and a company memo suggesting carpooling to talk my boss into letting adjust my schedule. It allows me ride to work with my fiancé and bike home 3 days a week and leave an hour early 2 days a week.

She has a bike rack and goes by my office in the morning and I ride the 20 miles home. I’m currently using my mountain bike until they finish some road construction on my route, then I will switch to my touring bike.

Saving money and losing weight….

Why didn’t someone think of this before? They could have made millions!
