Cycling versus driving a car in 2009

A poll on the (defunct) Ecovelo website made me ponder the distances I covered by bike and by car last year. I realized that the distance I covered by bicycle last year was at least double the distance I covered by car. I’m genuinely pleased with that!

The only snag I had this winter that the bowden cables operating my hub gear froze when it was below -5°C. :-( I might have to take them apart and dry them.

(Even with the recent snow, the cyclepaths in and around Eindhoven are being kept nicely snow-free. Three cheers for the people keeping them clear! It’s very much appreciated!)
