Commuted to Work by Bike

It was a beautiful day to commute to work by bike! My goal each year is to commute by bike a total of 5 days. With a 50 mile round trip daily commute that saves me almost a tank of gas.

Also, I've seen some interesting wild life that I would have otherwise missed. For example, this morning the roads were covered with baby toads hopping about! I've never seen so many in my life. I think I managed to somehow not run over any as I kept a watch out and didn't see any toad slime on my front tire.

Total number of miles in for the year (since April 1st): ~1230. Commuting miles: ~200.

Wow! I have only about 1700 miles or so for the year starting 1/1/2008 and zero commuting miles.
Way to go!

It was fun to be part of the "escort" on your way home. As always, you make us proud!

Nice pic! A couple weeks ago I came across a snapping turtle. Your toad probably wont bite your finger off. :-D

Hooterville Mayor, you give me too much credit! The commuting miles are part of my overall mileage for the year. I'm looking forward to adding ~500 RAGBRAI miles, that will boost my miles for the year.
