Money from Biking.

My trip to work by car.

My trip to work via bike.

Not much difference in length, but you can see that it is about 7 miles to work making it 14 miles for a trip each day. I have taken my bike to work roughly 10 times so far for a total of 140 miles. That is some good saving. That is roughly .5 tanks of gas which costs me about $50 for me to fill up. That right there is $25 saved from biking. Thats some good cheddar that I've been able to hold on to.

It did cost about $100 for me to receive my bike, so right now the money I save isn't net gain until I break the $100 barrier. I would have to ride my bike 44 times to and from work, to get to that threshold. My butt is going to be sore...
