    I'm really enjoying this challenge. Reminds me a little of the Mr. Money Mustache post - well worth a read: http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2012/05/07/what-do-you-mean-you-dont-have-a-bike/

    A bit warmer today but rain is coming. Nothing rain jacket and rain pants can't solve. Biking rules!

    Today was CHILLY! My ears were tingling by the time I got to work. And it so beats driving.
