riding for my life
about a year ago i announced that i had collected and saved enough money to buy a new bicycle. many of my faithful readers donated to my cause, and i couldn't believe it when i actually got to take it out for the first ride.
if you look closely at this image you'll see that my odometer just passed 3000 miles. 3000 miles in just over one year of riding. i'm pretty happy with that.
a little poking around the internet revealed that driving those miles in our midsize car would have added about 1.65 tons of carbon emissions to the atmosphere.
go ride your bike!
