Last fall I shared Mr. Crunchy’s plan for bike commuting during his work year (he’s a middle school science teacher). In December he had surpassed his number of riding days in the 2008-2009 school year. Yesterday he met his goal, 90 days of bicycle commuting for the year. Next week he’ll be able to surpass that goal as his school year isn’t done yet (we go pretty late in upstate NY because of our February break).
What I didn’t share with you was the fact that L1 hasn’t been riding his ebike since April because of a broken spoke puncturing the wheel rim. He’s been trying to work with the manufacturer since then to get it fixed (not their fault, he’s just trying to get the correct part). That means he’s been riding his road bike for the past two months. He put well over 845 miles on his ebike, and over 700 miles on his road bike.
I am seriously in awe of him and all of you out there who bike commute. Thank you, all of you, for what you do to help stave off more pollution and resource depletion.
