Bike Month Weeks 2 & 3 and Tyler State Park Apocalypse Ride

I didn’t post any updates for awhile and I apologize. I had finals to deal with and hardly went to the office at all. And when I did, there was bad weather brewing so I wound up driving. So Week 2 was a wash. I didn’t bike to work, but then again I hardly drove, either. Week 3 was another matter. I biked in most of the week but wound up driving a couple of days for inclement weather forecasts. The forecast bad weather those days didn’t end up happening until well after dark, so I felt cheated.

Bike Month Week 1

For the first week of bike month, I was able to commute every day of the week, totaling about 35mi. Weight 178.2, BF 12.3% (I was apparently dehydrated when I stepped on the scale). Not a huge amount, but I do have a short commute. I compiled a video showing one of my route options (the one with some dirt).

National Bike Month Weigh-in

I’m a few days late to post this, but trust me, I did weigh-in on Sunday. As part of National Bike Month, I am committing to ride my bike to work daily (weather permitting). As the month goes on and I ride daily, I am going to track my weight and body fat % to see how things change with the increased activity level. I will also post the amount of gas I did not use assuming I did not drive my car (a 2007 Honda Fit that gets roughly 29mpg in my daily driving). This is going to vary somewhat from reality, since the route I may take by bike can differ substantially from the route I take driving. An efficient auto route does not necessarily equate to an efficient bike route and vice versa. Also, riding a bike is fun and I have fun alternate routes for bike commutes.
