Ride on

Throughout the summer months I try to use my bicycle to get to work.  Google maps estimates it at 15 km and I normally do it in 35-40 minutes.  The road way where I live isn't really ideal for cyclists but I do have a bike lane for the last 3 kilometres or so.  Thankfully, the trip home has slightly more down hill sections then up hill ones.  It is satisfying to get to work on your own power, if only we could do something about the safety of such a trip.

I would like my primary motivation to be getting fit and staying active but the bigger motivator is the financial burden of the second car for the family.  We have been surviving on one car for a while and we would like to keep it that way for as long as we can.
