Ride to work on census day Tue 9/8

Postby Comedian » Mon Aug 08, 2011 5:42 pm

So I hope everyone is going to ride to work on census day!

How many trips have you made by public transport this year? I've just counted mine up and it's 14 so far this year. That's two trips to work by PT a month - the rest by bike. I can live with that. :)
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

I will be riding to work tomorrow. 0 trips on public transport, it goes no where near my work. So its bike or car for me.

I cycle to work almost every day. Whether I do so tomorrow or not (due weather, sickness etc), I'll still be saying I did on the census form, on the basis that this is what I normally do.

I work from home most days, and will tomorrow. Tomorrow, I'll go for a ride, then come home to start work. Then I can honestly say I rode to work. :)

Sounds similar to me, probably a few more trips by PT, maybe 15, 1 by car (my usual yearly quota) and the rest by bike.

It will take a lot to get me off the bike tomorrow, I want to make sure I can say I rode to work.

yes I think if we average out the trips we take by bike then use rounding, it is safe to assume that many of us rode our bike today despite what we might actually do. :lol:

I am appalled at all the reprobates lying to the guvment. Fortunately I rode to work today so I don't have to.
