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
