#30DaysOfBiking – You Should, You Know.

What’s #30DaysOfBiking Then?

To quote the 30DaysOfBiking facebook page:

“The only rule for 30 Days of Biking is that you bike every day for 30 days—around the block, 20 miles to work, whatever suits you—then share your adventures online. We believe biking enriches life, builds community, and preserves the Earth.”


I can’t put it any better than that.

– Enriching life?  Certainly.
– Building community?  Damn right, I’ll vouch for that.
– Preserving the Earth?  Time will tell. But it’s a hell of a lot better than burning dead dinosaurs.

What Is It For Me?

30 Days Of Biking is a real challenge.  I’ve seen it twice before and not joined in.  This September, I bit the bullet.  It’s not the easiest thing in the world to do and my (very) short rides show that it’s not really helping me increase my #Sep100 mileage.


30 Days Of Biking, So Far

30 Days Of Biking, So Far


My worst day so far was taking the bike out of the car after returning home from a trip to Dunfermline at around 10.45pm, then riding it as far the door to my shed at 10.46pm!  That was 0.03 miles done 🙂  Having said that, I did ride it around Dunfermline town centre the night before after a team meal out, before hitting the sack in a little hotel.

My best day was a lovely afternoon with my better half, riding from Crosby to Formby and back, along the Sefton Coastal Path on Merseyside.  A lovely trip, an easy path and two beautiful beaches – not to mention the rather splendid Antony Gormley “Another Place” sculptures at Crosby.

Another Idiot. Another Place.

Another Northern Monkey. Another Place.

What Is “30 Days Of Biking” For You?

This is where you tell me.

Tell me why you’re not doing it.
… or if you are…
Tell me how it’s going for you.

Thanks! 🙂

    I’m not doing it, instead I’m substituting with “do something everyday even if its just a walk”. It’s gone pretty well so far, today I’m failing though. 😀

    Hey, that’s a good idea. I mean, you can hardly ride every day with The Littlest Vag strapped to you, can you? (Readers, please check Carrie’s blog to ascertain that I have not just made an inappropriate comment about the size of her Vag)

    Its going well, apart from Mondays and Tuesdays..I cant quite ever get motivated on a Monday or Tuesday..

    But still I made it out 1 mile on both days.

    I’m not doing this one as I’m too busy to cycle at the moment with my renovating/decorating and my hours changing to 10-6, I’m struggling to fit it in anywhere 🙁 I rarely cycle for work either at the moment, the mad idiots have given me a van!

    I did do the April one though and it was very motivating 😀

    I did it for the first time in April, at the time I was struggling with motivation and it really helped me rearrange my life to fit in cycling, along with 12hr day and night shifts, a young family and various other commitments I have. It worked, it kick started the best ever year (so far) cycling wise for me and I’ve not looked back since. I’ve virtually met some great new people too, which is always nice. I’m doing it this time just because it is there to be done and the sense of satisfaction and the end is amazing! I’d reccomend it yo anyone who has not tried to to get on board in April

    It’s definitely hitting a nerve. Even when it’s difficult to get on the bike, I’m managing to get short rides in. Yesterday I dragged my boy out for a wee 5-miler around a local business park and we had a great hour. I bribed him with a McLatte but that £1.40 was all it took 🙂
