November Stats

I’m into stats. So I thought I’d do a wrap up of our family transportation stats for the month of November:

Total Number of Car Trips – 5

Number of Miles Driven 25.5

Number of car-free days – 25

Longest car-free streak for November – 12 days

Family Record (set in September)22 days

Number of trips to the gas station – 0

Rainy Days in Seattle (According to the National Weather Service)25

Longest Ride with kids – Riding to the Pike Place Market and back the day after Thanksgiving – 12.8 miles

Most memorable ride – To the Arboretum via the center for Urban Horticulture with the kids. Good times. Lots of bird nests spotted.

Ride with the worst weather – Picking up the 4 year old at preschool in a torrential downpour. I couldn’t wait out the rain in my warm, dry house; it was time to get him so I had to go.

Last gas purchase – 8/31/2007

– Anne

  1. Seems weird to not gas up during an entire month, doesn’t it?
    Have you guys checked out cycling rain capes for the rainy days? If it’s just a misty rain, I’ll skip it, but when it starts coming down, a cape rules.

  2. Yes. Even weirder to go 3 months. I had to look at my visa bill because I couldn’t remember my last trip to the gas station.

    Rain capes would probably be useful – especially on a day like today. Do you have a link to share?


    Reads like a who’s who of old school bike shops. I got mine from Rivendell a few years back.

    I seem to recall Todd from Clever Cycles taking a photo of his son wearing one while on the back of the Xtra. Way too big for him, but perfect since it covered him almost completely, I seem to recall.
