It's like driving in LA, so I'm Bike Commuting instead!

I am now bicycle commuting to class daily as weather permits! The Administration at Ivy Tech has really enrolled the students this year, so traffic is terrible! It's only a 10 minute ride and a 30 minute drive now! Talk about irony!

The cool thing is, I feel great when I get to class, not sleepy. I don't have the hassle of fighting for a parking space either. There are a few other students who are riding now as well. I hope it doesn't catch on though too much. I like easy access to the bike racks!

The ride home is pretty sweet too. It's relaxing! My blood pressure is staying lower, and my head gets clear by the time I'm home as well. All in all, bike commuting has been a net gain.

By the way, I've spent $30.00 on gas for the MONTH! That isn't too bad at all! So, here are the net gains:
  • I save gas
  • I don't have to fight for parking
  • I have fun going to and from class
  • I'm getting exercise
  • I'm staying healthy
Looks like I have a winning combination going. I'm going to have to look for a place further away from school though, just for the exercise .

I don't get any feed from your blog any more and I have no clue why *sigh*
Anyway...you're right about the exercise bit. It does give a lot moe energy and you feel a lot better in many ways :)

Hope you and Mrs Stormcrow are good :D

Sounds like you've got a pretty good setup. Remember, you can always take the long way home.

Tom...I got your email and I got the feeds working over my browser. Just to let you know that it all worked out in the end :D

Cool! Good to hear! :)

Hurray for alternate modes of transportation!

Does your school promote any alternate transportation to mitigate the traffic and parking?

Free bus service on the City Bus line and bike racks, that's about it.
