Yesterday, I achieved the goal of taking my bike to work on the Metro. I left the house about a half hour early, I was a little worried that the train would be too full for me to fit my bike on the train that I usually use.
The return trip was great! I left the office around 3:00 pm and there was plenty of space on the train. I took the train to the half point of the trek and then rode my bike the last seven miles or so instead of waiting for the bus. I think I got home sooner than I would have if I had waited for the bus…so that was cool.
I am going to keep experimenting with different ideas for better ways to get to work and using the Metro and my bike. I still drove about three days since taking the plunge in to GREEN comutting for various reasons, but over all, I really prefer the metro/bike option.
I definately save money on gas…and I have a chance to get a work out in while I am traveling to work.
