I admit it. Operation Bike Ride 2011 has, for the most part, been an abysmal failure.
Until now, that is.
I ran out of money on my transit card, and decided to pay for a tune-up on my bike instead of reloading my card.
It just so happened that I got my bike back from the shop on Chicago’s “Bike to Work Week”, and it also just so happened that it rained 3 out of 5 days during that week. I rode all that week, and every day since. And it’s pretty much rained every day.
- zero dollars spent on transportation in two weeks
- getting my bikini body back
- shaving 30 minutes off my commute time
- having to use my bike as a clothes line and publicly display my sports bra on a daily basis
