Bike commuting?
« on: October 24, 2016, 05:39:57 PM »
I changed jobs at the beginning of this year, and in May I decided to start bike commuting. My commute is about 7.5 miles each way, with ~5.5 miles on a bike trail. Within the first two months, I instantly lost about 15 points. I definitely feel much more healthy that I have in awhile!


Does anyone else bike commute?
Biking and budgeting my way to early retirement!

Used to. It was super fun, good exercise and cheap. But in Madison, WI it was only ~6 or so months out of the year.

I would bike to work if I didn't live 18 miles away.

I'd love to but Atl traffic where I need to go would likely land me in the hospital.  :-\

I did for a while, but Texas heat and hill country slopes and an upstairs apartment and pregnancy all conspired to stop me. Then my bike got stolen. Someday I'll get a new one and try it again. I'm definitely not enjoying driving with the weather this pretty!
