Biking to work again

Filed under: creation care — theburts @ 5:21 pm

So the weather’s beautiful, I’m not working at two places on Saturdays anymore, I finally invested in an air pump for my bike tires, and I’m out of shape. Four great reasons to start biking to work. Today was my first day…meant to start last week, but it was raining, and I didn’t want my first day biking to be a rainy day. Anyway, it took exactly 8 minutes and I only sweat a tiny bit. Not bad, not bad. I think I can get it down to about 6 minutes after I’ve been doing it for a while.

I feel bad for you, Amanda. I can bike to work in the same amount of time than it takes you to get to the interstate. :(

Now it’s time for my comrades in life to support my habit of biking to work. This is the point just past the “let me know if there’s anything I can do,” because I’m letting you know. :) Encourage, keep me accountable. I’d really appreciate that. Ok, that’s all for now. Peace, Daniel



  1. Go Biker dude! Your awesome and amazing for biking to work, and your wife will love your body even more once you’ve been biking ;)

  2. Reasons to bike to work numbers 5 and 6:

    5. I forgot to mention the impact it has on the environment…or should I say the lack of impact it has on the environment! (see last blog)

    6. “Your wife will love your body even more once you’ve been biking.”

    Thanks, Ariah, for that last one. :) Mindy, is this true?

  3. You can do it!
    I have a bike now but am NOT riding to work. It’s 3 miles but a suicide run with the CRAZY drivers down here.

  4. Way to go for riding your bike, Daniel! I’m really proud of you for making an intentional choice that reflects your values and beliefs!!
    I don’t have a bike. I have been looking into riding the bus. I haven’t figured it out yet though; I’d have to transfer from one city’s bus to another city’s bus. Kinda intimidating!! :o)
