Bicycle Miles

Below I have recorded miles ridden on bicycle (utilizing my ridekick if fetching groceries). I really enjoy cycling, but it is challenging because the closest amenities for me are 12-13 miles round trip, and work is 26 miles round trip! I hope to move closer to everything in the next few years; what’s your commute?

March was plagued with a knee injury, a cold, a stomach bug, a few spring snow storms, and other challenges. Glad to have gotten that all out of the way, so the rest of the year can be smooth sailing!

    Love the accountability! Keep riding. And thanks for the intro to importance of net worth – found your blog from #YNAB

    • Thanks Jennifer! I am curious, which of my content was effective at introducing the importance of net worth – just the net worth tracking page? That sounds like a good idea for a future post.

    Good job with the bike commuting and mileage log. Regarding your 28-mile round trip commute it’s totally reasonable and awesome. Lots of people do this and more every day here in SF. The key is a community of riders to go with you. A bunch of us here live in the city and work(ed) at Google, Facebook, Apple etc., which are 30-50 miles down south. Every day there are groups of 10-20 riders commuting down to the south bay and it’s become something of a phenomenon. On first fridays of each month, we have 40-60 riders. And these are not necessarily bike-friendly roads. You just make them yours.

    Personally, I commuted to Google around 600 times by bike, which is 42 miles one way (then corporate shuttle or train to get home), so I know it’s reasonable. Our community site is SF2G.com (~3000 members now), which has routes and examples that have been posted to Strava. Here’s an example:

    https://www.strava.com/activities/266044602

    that day I only went to Palo Alto, because I don’t actually work down there anymore, so it was more of a social/coffee ride. But I did that same ride (~32 miles) for work for 2.5 years post-Google.

    Looks like you’re in a less-agreeable area weather-wise, but that doesn’t stop lots of people in cold cities, it’s just an attitude and clothing adjustment.

    Regarding the bike, that’s a pretty cool old Raleigh, but you might want to get a modern road bike if you want to take it to the next level. A very fast and light (~17 lbs.) aluminum road bike can be had for under $1k. As usual, CL is your friend.
