1000 miles

I've been working at my current contract job for 3 months. Today, I hit a 1,000 miles on my bike computer. I actually hit more, but subtracting my non-commuting mileage from the actual mileage gives me 1,000 commuting miles. This equates to about 40 days of bicycle commuting. Considering that it costs me $5.30 for a round-trip Metro ride, and Metro is the only other means I use to get to work, I have saved $212 so far this year by bicycle commuting! Add in the accrued benefits that lack easy valuation (improved health, etc.), and I've made/saved a fair bit of moolah.
