On my way to work this morning, I suddenly realized that the cost of my bike, divided by the days I rode it to work, has dropped below $5, which is cheaper than driving. To me, this makes the splurge on the bike somewhat justifiable.
Next goal: make the bike costs less than taking the bus. This will take a couple more months and quite a bit of workout, however, once I get past that, the bike is effectively free. How cool is that!
