I’m at the end of week two of a three week long car-free trip to the East Coast, which will save me close to $1000. Besides the unavoidable plane fare – here are my transportation costs so far.
- $9 bus fare Boulder to DIA
- $5 bus fare BWI to Gaithersburg, MD
- $5 train fare Gaithersburg to Boyds, MD
- $8 bicycle tube
- $0 parking
- $0 gasoline
- $0 rental car
So far I have ridden about 500 miles on the bicycle.
By using mass transit and a bicycle I have saved huge amounts of money, plus I love to ride and arrive everywhere in a good mood. Before the trip is over I will have visited three states and the District of Columbia on my bicycle.
Best of all, I’m preventing 0.000000000000000000000001 degrees of global warming.
