BACKGROUND - I abandoned my motor vehicle, at least for most local transportation, in 1985. Since then, I've accumulated 113,000+ bicycle miles, mostly in and around Boise. This is what 2006 turned out like.
Total bicycle miles – 5606
Total days ridden – 354
(Explanation… it would be 365, if I hadn't taken a 3-day auto trip to Utah, and an 11-day motorcycle trip to No. California.)
Total work days – 234; days the bike was ridden to work – 234.
Gas - $0
Monthly payments - $0
Insurance - $0
Parking - $0
Vehicle registration - $0
Tires, tubes, and patches - $75 (approx.)
Misc. parts and maintenance - $75 (approx.)
Sense (some would argue false sense) of physical, mental, and social superiority over all those pitiful slugs in their cars – PRICELESS.
