Commuted to work the other day, about 16 mile round trip to one of the places I work. Less then an total hour ride time, usually about 30 minutes drive time. I’m going to try to do this more, but when I started thinking about I realized it may not be as economical as you would imagine. Takes about $1.80 worth of gas for my car trip, or around 800 calories for my bike trip. Now if one didn’t replace those calories then it would be free, but if you had to replace 800 calories with say, doughnuts, it’d probably cost about the same. Of course it was a great way to sneak a bike ride in so it was well worth it!
Just a quick reminder, tomorrow is the Dirty South Harrisburg. Weather looks good, expecting a decent turnout. There is an option for a Dirty 50K forming up as well.
