Bixi

I live in the old port of Montreal (yeah where the tourist go, and walk around as if they were in Disneyland...) and since my office is downtown I used the Bixi bikes to get to a from work (about 1.7km each way).  This method of getting to work ends today as the weather is becoming increasingly cold.

Since May I have made 217 trips and covered more than 300km -- total savings a measly 21 liters of fuel (had I driven).  The real challenge is to use back roads, the problem is that some streets are rather dangerous, not in the morning (I usually arrive at the office before rush hour) but in the evening, when people are tired and aggressive!.

Anyway, total cost for the Bixi was $72 -- not a bad investment and a fun way to go to work.
