Cool deal!!

I'm a little over 2 months now and still loving it. Only 446 miles so far (8.6 round trip a day) but by this weekend I should be over 500 with a little road trip I have planed for Saturday.

(a resounding) Yes !

When I reach 2k I am treating myself to an upgrade in bicycle. I really like the higher Trek FX bikes.

Sweet. Have you worked out how much money you'll save in a year compared to private vehicle or public transport?

Awesome! Great to see a lot of us who started this year, still hanging in there through the hot months. I am just about up to 4 months, with 1278 miles in. I think the habit is starting to really grove in now.
