Two Thousand Miles

This post honors the fact that Paul rides his bike to work nearly every day, simultaneously saving the environment and his health and lots of money. According to the odometer on his bike, he's ridden over 2000 miles. Check out the approximate savings of 18 months of being a 1-car family:
  • $3000-$5000 of car payments
  • $200 of fuel
  • $200 of licensing, fees
  • $400 of insurance
  • $400 of gym membership
Grand total: a lot. Rock on, Paul!

  • The scraggly beard should add a lot of tree-hugger street cred. Nice work, Paul.

  • Paul, you would fit into Germany nicely. Except for all that biking gear, that is.

  • You forgot to mention in all of your money saving, "a picture of Paul in his bike gear: Priceless". Way to go Paul that's great.
