I know from too many bad experiences that what they say is true, “Failure to plan is a plan for failure”. Whether it’s a job interview, a shopping trip, or beginning a new project it’s necessary to do your research and make a plan. So as I begin my new adventure of bicycle commuting I have been finding out what I need to know and how to be successful.
There are many reasons why I am choosing this endeavor but a few include reducing my impact on the environment and incorporating a new method of exercise into my regular routine. I am in relatively good shape; I do cardio 4 times a week, yoga 3-4 times a week, and try to climb a couple times a week if possible. My job is 8 miles from home which isn’t unbearable and most of the errands I need are within 2 miles. I have faith that I can do this and will be a better person, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
As a regular part of my blog I will be including updates over the next few weeks about my bike and its recent modifications, important information and resources for better bicycle commuting, my experiences (the good and the bad), and tips and trick I learn along the way.
I look forward to sharing this experience with you and welcome your suggestions and ideas.
