Shove This Up Your Pipeline, Oil Cronies!
Well, I have finally had enough of rising gas prices. So Carly and I have started cycling back and forth to school. It is a good workout for both of us and now Carly has a "cool " factor. On Friday when I dropped her off at the door, a couple of her classmates were in awe. I think we are the only ones that bike to school, but I would love to see that change.
I am also dedicating Monday as a "non-driving" day. I will drop Carly off and then head on into work under my own power. Living in a small town, I could probably do everything by bike, if I could just get into the habit. I have a trailer, so I could even go grocery shopping (it would keep me from buying ice cream, one of my weaknesses).
At what point are people going to say, "Enough is enough!" For me, it was $3.58. The sad thing is, to train on the trails or fireroads, I have to drive 20 to 40 miles. I will probably start to ride the road more and take my chances with the "jellies," aka stupid drivers.
