I made it! I biked in today! All 5 days, yay! Look at my goofy grin up there!
We tallied our family statistics (we're a family of geeks, this is how we have fun) and found that this week we biked a total of 133.7 miles, with an average trip length of 10 miles. The average was brought up by S, his work is way out in the woods. His average was 21 miles. This means that we saved 4 gallons of gas or about $13.80. I compare this to the $27 for the new pedal after I broke one in half yesterday, plus $40 for dinner out two nights because everyone (except Max) was just too tired to go grocery shopping or cook anything. Clearly we can do better money-wise with better planning. But of course it's not just about $$.
We don't have the official results yet from the workplace challenge, but we hear that it's a very close race between us and one other place, with a difference of less than 1%. It's a photo finish, or would be if this were a different sport.
