As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I want to use my bike more and car less. Fortunately, living in Bellingham makes this relatively easy. Most places I like to go are on or very near the trail system and those that aren’t have wonderful, quiet neighborhood streets to travel through. I’ve already used my bike five times this week instead of my car! As an added plus, this is a very bike (and pedestrian)-friendly city. Of course, there are exceptions and I’m always on the lookout for the hoser who doesn’t want to share the road. Overall, though, I’m really comfortable commuting using pedal power. I can’t take my bike everywhere, but whenever I can, I do. And just because I’m into useless pieces of information, I’ve decided to keep track of the number of times I bike instead of drive here on my blog. It’s over in the side bar under “Bike vs. Car with a snapshot taken along the way.How often do you use your bike instead I’d your car?
This post is in response to a challenge by Darlene over at My First 5k to blog about 5 things I love right now.
Seriously, I would have taken my bike grocery shopping yesterday except I couldn’t figure out how to stuff 4 bags of groceries in there. Then there was the issue of getting the ice cream home.
Riding the Trails
Can’t get enough of this. Riding the trails is my Zen time for the day…even in the rain.
