I'm still tracking my bike commuting,

March Bike Log
(confession: if I hadn't taken Monday off, I might well not have ridden my bike to work that because it was positively monsooning out.)

because for years my employer has paid for a portion of my annual bus pass, which I no longer use, and I think I should get some equivalent benefit, so I'm prepared to show documentation of my itty-bitty transportation carbon footprint.

BTW, one of the NY based foodie blogs pointed out that many restaurants and bakeries do flourless desserts this week for Passover...

This comment is worth carving in stone.

Great article. All the usual hateful comments, of course--and I just can't seem to stop myself from ignoring the Never Read The Comments rule on bike-related blogs--but some very good ones too.

i think this it's great to still keep track of!

and i think it's reasonable, if they are willing to pay for bus passes, for them to give something (a day off? a percentage of the bus pass value? tire money?) as a thanks!

I take the days off under my own steam... :D

You prompted me to actually search my employer's Byzantine employee portal to find the Bike/Walk program. They will actually increase my pre-tax income by a certain amount every month for walking or cycling.

It's not a lot, and it's pre-tax so I'd have to offset it somehow, but it's all good, and I'm gonna do it starting in July! Woo hoo!
