How about human powered transportation? At least a couple of times a week. Even once a week.
What to you do? If you are in sales or have to wear a suit and can't go in all sweaty, or you work in Canadian tundra, feel free to ignore my suggestion.
But most of us (I'm the worst) could use a bit more exercise. I would give anything to have a 4 mile commute.
What helped me a bit was take out extra stuff that I'm not using. I don't need that guitar amp or my golf clubs to be in the back all the time. I'm also looking at taking off the luggage rack, which I've never used but has proven to be more tricky than I initially expected. Also, I'm looking at taking off the tow package. I have used that 2x in 3 years. Taking off the luggage rack will reduce drag, and taking off the hitch will reduce with weight about 30 lbs.
For me, it's lots of little changes.
Of course, the best thing that I did was slow down.
I'm really considering just saying screw it and riding a bike regardless of the signs. Ohh by the way I'm in the Air Force. If anyone wants to review my route on google maps the beginning address is 10480 Auto Mall Parkway
Biloxi, MS 39532 to Keesler Air Force Base, MS. If you look on the map what's killing me is crossing I-110.
Hmmm. Looks like there's no public transit across 110 either, right?
Can't tell where the base gates are.
It looks like the parkway and 110 ought to be fairly easy. Can you enter on the east and park just within the perimeter say on F street for security and avoid all the small streets on the base? Google maps tells me that's only about 2.8 miles. That saves 30% on miles and I suspect crossing the base is 25mph and full of stop signs. (?)
Or even park just outside the gate if there's a visitor lot. Saves on idling at the gatehouse. Hope things are pretty reasonable now, but I remember creeping along for 1/4 mile entering Wright Patterson for 100% ID checks after 9/11.
Four miles? Bike the trip. It isn't that far, and you are allowed to bike in traffic. It's actually safer to bike in a lane than on the sidewalk or on the bike lane in my opinion. Turning cars who don't like to look for pedestrians or bikers tend to see you a little better when you're holding up traffic.
