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.
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.
