Here's another reason to take up cycling: Peak Oil!

Peak oil, now there's a scary thought. Have you considered how you will deal with fuel shortages, etc.? Cutting back on your driving is a good start!

Ride your bike on errands instead of driving that 2 miles. Consider commuting to work by bike. You get health benefits and save money at the same time!

Interestingly enough, we had set the goal for 2007 at 50,000 miles and we are almost there now! check out this preview of next weeks quarterly totals! They'll be bigger of course and I'll almost bet we top 10,000 miles for June alone! I won't be surprised if we hit 100,000 miles as a group this year!










April 6339.49


March Quarter 18744.51

May 8459.58


June Quarter 23791.35

Click the charts to get a larger image. My hosting site is apparently having issuers today, so I have uploaded them to Bloggers server this time and unfortunately the image suffers.

In closing: I'd like to post a toast to Al Wong, aka Rev Monkey on Bike Forums: Gone but not forgotten. Al Wong was from Markham, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto and was killed by being struck by a motorist backing out of a parking space in a parking lot. Al succumbed to head injuries after this injury. Al was a friend I never got to meet face to face and tragically, died on his 18th birthday, June 25, 2007.

Absent Companions! Al, you'll be missed!

A New Kid on the Block

Crazylady, my wife, is now blogging. She's over at Crazylady's Quest, her new blog, which is about cycling and weight loss as well. Her goal is to lose at least 50 pounds over the next year. Stop by and offer your support for this goal!

Crazylady intends to lose this loss through cycling, other exercises and diet!
