  1. ooh, how do you work these out (miles I can fathom - but CO2?)

    ReplyDelete
  2. The CO2 figure for each car after 2001 is available and you can find it on the internet. Figures for some older cars are available too. My car produces an average of 236g/km. There is also a national average which is 190g/km.

    For every journey I do on the bike that would have been done in the car, I show a C02 saving.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Hi
    Amazing achievement!!! The situations are frighteningly similar, I work in IT, started at 18st 3 and have a kid (only 2 1/2). I have been cycling for 10 weeks and have so far lost 20lbs but am concerned about the up and coming winter. Did you cover all of your miles on the road or did you use a turbo trainer? If they were on road how did you find riding on wintered roads? The last thing I want is to waste what I have already done but I am slightly concerned about safety. Any tips?
    Cheers

  4. Hi Nick,

    All of my miles are covered on road and I don't own a turbo trainer. One of my motivators was to make the bike pay for itself. Therefore, the more miles I do that I would normally take the car, the more the bikes pay for themselves.

    I started in the middle of March so I had a while before the Winter came around. Riding in Winter wasn't a problem, even the snow. I'm quite good at balancing on the bike and balance it crucial in icy/snowy conditions. You also don't want to be clipped into the the pedals in these conditions so using a mountain bike and trainers is a perfect combination.

    If I can help furher contact me at http://goo.gl/z0M8p

  5. Thanks Toby,
    I think using the MTB is going to be a good idea as I am not sure I am confident enough on the road bike.
    Unfortunately I live 23 miles from work and have a company car so the only thing I can offset against the cost of the bikes is health and fitness which I guess is enough in it's self though it would be nice to save some money by using the bike.
    Again thanks for the advice and thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Placing a zip-tie around the wheel tube at each spoke should help you increase traction on ice and snow.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I've seen that done with zip ties. It'd be a pain fixing a puncture though!

  8. Winter tyres - continental top contact 2 are the way to go! Ride in snow and ice then, no bother.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Top Contact 2 are no good for a road bike though. Hybrid, CX or mountain bike only.
