I’m a geek. I keep lists. I keep data. If I don’t know where I’ve been how will I know where I’m going?
Is it warm enough outside?
The negative cost of The MinusCar Project, it’s more than just a bike ride.
1,917 - The Car
3,258 - The Bike(s)
Fuel Purchased (gallons)
9.6 - average per month
32.46 - average per month pre-MinusCar
At $2.75 per gallon I pocket $62 per month over my previous life.
Auto Service (dollars)
4.20 - average per month
210.32 - average per month pre-MinusCar
$206.12 savings per month.
I save a total of $268.12 a month in automobile related crap. Shoot, I could buy a whole ‘nother car. A nice one too! No wonder The Wife has green lighted an Independent Fabrication for me.
Anybody want to discuss how they can't afford to cut their car's carbon emissions by 70%?
The bicycle is also a "natural enemy of impulse buying" which leaves room to discuss decreased consumer debt and increased charitable giving. Decreased consumer debt is directly connected to decreased consumption which is directly connected to transport and resource utilization, and even more environmental impact.
Is it warm enough outside now? The MinusCar Project, it's more than riding bikes.
