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
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.
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.
