Summer Commuting Challenger - Oly
Distance of daily commute: 4.25 miles one way
Average commuting miles per week: 42.5 miles
Estimation of gas saved per week: ~$10 or ~$3 (Tundra vs. FZ1)
Primary commuting bike: Karate Monkey SS
Interesting story about commute:
When I first started commuting last year and got clipless pedals/shoes for the first time, I lost my balance while rotating the bike 90 degrees at the stop light at 70th and Old Cheney (SW corner, before they redid it) and fell over in rush hour traffic on the street corner. My clipped in foot was stuck underneath the bike and I had a heck of a time getting enough rotation to get released. Therapy is going well...
To have fun riding bikes.
