New Year's Resolution Broken; Yet There Is Hope

My New Year's resolution for 2008 is to ride bike farther than I drive car. Here's the stats so far:

Car: 625 miles
Bike: 510 miles
(Train: about 3000 miles)

What put me in the red is that I had to drive to work three days with lab equipment, 45 miles each way. But my goal is still within reach, I just have to keep the car in the garage and the bike between my legs. And the weather is looking up.


In May there is a 'Ride your bike to work' competition and we are recruiting velocophiles for our team, The Flying Aerosols. I didn't make the name. My role is to organize a bike-fix rally where a few of us will bring tools and rags and adjust chains and seats and spokes, and then we'll go for a ride. They have a competition to see which team bikes the farthesetand there is a lottery-- last year I won some color pencils.
