Oct 29 – Nov 2 was Bike to Work week in Vancouver.
Pathetic geek that I am, I carefully log my commute during this bi-annual event.
This Fall, this was a very typical week for me, i.e. I rode to work in the morning and home in the evening. The daily 17.8km that I log is a bit of an underestimate because the map measures as the crow flies, so let’s call it 18km as a round number. That means 90km per week. Which in turn – given travel for work and vacations, otherwise I bike every day – probably between 3,000-4,000km per year. Who would have thought?
For many summers, I drive the family car up to Alaska for a one way 4,000km door-to-door drive. I wouldn’t have guessed that I bike that same distance every year.
All good news as far as I’m concerned.
