2-Mile Challenge

January 3, 2008

It’s now 2008, people, we’re running out of time. Bike riding is fun, and healthy. I personally challenge anyone who happens across this blog to the Clif bar 2-mile challenge. 2 miles is literally a 10 minute ride, and that’s not even if you’re gunning it. Ride to work, to the store, friends’ houses. If it’s close, ride. I know it’s winter and it’s cold, bundle up! Gloves, scarves, face bandannas! You’ll soon find that a cold weather ride can be really enjoyable if you’re properly dressed and have the right attitude. So here’s the 2-mile challenge, if any of you decide to take it I’d love if you’d post how you’re feeling about it.

Dear Malvern Commuters…

Yes, that is me passing you on the left at 30mph on King st. daily. How does it feel to know that your laziness is costing you time, money, and your children’s future. I gotta tell you, it feels pretty good knowing that my bicycle gets me where I need to go in the morning, faster than your car gets you. Feel free to switch anytime, I won’t judge. In fact, I will welcome you to the club.
