30 Days of Biking is an internet game, where you ride your bike every day for a month and blog, tweet or post on facebook about your rides. Since I ride a bike almost every day, I thought it would be fun to track what I really do. I don’t expect to collect any impressive totals for distance, cargo-carrying capacity or much else. However, I thought it would be kind of interesting to see how riding a bike does (or does not) fit into my life. I tweet it everyday, but will just post a weekly summary here, because writing every day is just too much work.
Day 1: Sunday 4/1/12 Distance: 0.5 miles
Rode up & down the closed street to start teaching Spencer to ride on-street.
Day 2: Monday 4/2/12 Distance: 12 miles
Regular commute on a beautifully sunny day. 14 cyclists waiting for the Ballard Locks to open as a big gravel barge came through.
Day 3: Tuesday 4/3/12 Distance: 12 miles
Regular commute. Caught in the rain twice, once while the sun was shining at the same time. Great rainbow.
Day 4: Wednesday 4/4/12 Distance: 2 miles
Took the bus to work, but only so that I could pick up the road bike from it’s tuneup on my way home.
Day 5: Thursday 4/5/12 Distance: 12 miles
Regular commute. Road bikes are fun too.
Day 6: Friday 4/6/12 Distance: 12 miles
Regular commute. Yes, it’s fun to go fast.
Day 7: Saturday 4/7/12 Distance: 5 miles
Took the mama bike to tee ball & a coffee date. Phinney ridge is very steep, but a lovely day for a ride.
Weekly total: 55.5 miles
