Well today is the last day of July, so I can summarize my progress biking into work for the month. I biked in 12 days of the 21 days I worked, or 57%. That’s not too bad… better than my estimate for last month. Most of the days that I didn’t bike in, like today, I was just too exhausted and used that as an excuse to not get on the bike, even though I know I could just take my bike ride a little easier and not feel it too much.
The days are also getting shorter, and the couple nights every week that I play sport after work I end up riding home at 730 or 8, which is getting darker. Since my ride home takes me on some narrow shoulders on fast roads, I don’t intend to ride home in the dark. I’m going to set a goal for August, weather permitting, to get in 15 commutes by bike.
