I rode my bike 2,395 miles to work last year.
117 days to work, out of 253 work days. An average of 11.5 miles each way. That’s 46% of the time.
With an average retail gas price of 1.93 a gallon for 2004, and my car’s mpg around 23 city, that comes to around 12 cents a mile for gas.
That means I saved roughly $287.40 on gas last year. Also less wear and tear/maintenance and mileage depreciation on my car.
I’m psyched to see what I can do this year.
What did YOU do last year?
