Save Gas, Ride Your Bike to the Gym!

One reason to ride my bike to the gym

by Tom Deno

Riding my bike to the gym twice a week at 2.5 miles each way is 5 miles round trip twice a week or 10 miles every week.

That is 10 x 52 = 520 miles per year. My old SUV goes about 20 miles per gallon and uses 520/20 = 26 gallons per year. For $4/gallon gasoline, this is about $100/year just for this one activity. It adds up.

Ride a bike!
