Report: July 16 – 29

Looks like I missed last week’s report. I’ll combine two weeks in this one.

It’s been pretty great biking weather. One person’s drought is another person’s car sitting in the driveway. Yeah, that’s selfish…so, one person’s drought is my dried up peas. Yes, the garden is suffering…but the robins are enjoying the partially sundried tomatoes.

Trips -
MinusCar: 23
Multi-occupant Auto: 10
Single occupant Auto: 2
Destinations: 77

The Car left the driveway on 7/18 with just me in it. I was late because I was lazy. I tried to make the most of it.

My Car Miles: 29
My Bike Miles: 168

On the 24th I combined bus and bike for a trip to a regional transportation planning meeting. The bus was necessary because I wanted to be dressed and not sweaty. I can’t remember the last time I put my bike on the bus. I know I’ve never put the IF bike on the bus…the tires are so fat they need to be pounded into the rack.

I was the only one at the meeting with a messenger bag. I got the best parking spot though…they let me park inside the building.

I went to a CPR/First Aid class at the Oakland PD building and got to park my bike in the back of the room. I love that kind of thing.
