my average speed was about 10mph. it was pretty tough, mostly because my but is not used to being in the saddle that long. only one horn honk.
here in colorado, companies are required to pay a certain amount for miles driven while doing work related activities in your car. this doesn’t include driving to and from work [but it should]. it only includes things like driving to and from the airport on a business trip, or driving to a meeting in another city or whatever. the state reimbursement rate is now up to 51 cents per mile. this means that it now cost someone 51 cents a mile to drive their car. my drive to work is 17 miles one way, so each day i should get reimbursed about $17.34. i don’t get anything, so it ends up coming out of my pocket. i’ve been working at least 6 days a week, that’s over 100 dollars a week, or 400 a month! no wonder this family has no money. i can not drive any more…. that’s it. i can’t afford it. that’s not even counting my wife and my son’s driving.
i have all kinds of excuses to not ride today, but i’m just going to do it anyway.
have a nice day.
