Bicycling is Such a Hassle

So I’ve beenwalking_feet living in a loft in downtown Springfield for a year now.

Best. Move. Ever.

But there is something odd going on. I don’t use my bicycle quite as much as I used to. Sometimes it seems like a hassle. I mean going to the garage, unlocking it, riding it a couple of blocks, locking it, unlocking it, riding it a couple of blocks home, opening the garage (automatic door, of course), parking it, locking it.

So I just walk ;-)

    Nothing wrong with walking. My house is about two miles from town and two miles from my daughter’s school, and when I don’t feel like biking, I sometimes walk. Walking is less efficient than cycling, so you get more exercise.

    For the last two years of my dissertation follies, I lived in a shared student house that was about a mile by foot along a dirt trail vs. around three by bike. So it was kind of a wash. The footpath went through a woods and over the LIRR tracks and was a straight shot to the geosciences building. The road, NY 25A, went up the hill to the Stony Brook LIRR station, from which you then had to reverse course and ride back again to geosciences. If it was a muddy day, it didn’t make sense to take the path. Its nice to have the option.

    The issue will go away if you simply omit the “locking it” step.
