Bycycle

Ride a Bike

Biking is a healthy, accessible and affordable mode of transportation. It offers a reduced environmental footprint with no fuel expenses or parking fees, low maintenance costs, and provides a cardiovascular workout.

With thousands of miles of bicycle routes and increasing focus on improving bicycling safety and access in Pennsylvania, there are lots of ways that you can ride your bike. Check out the state’s designated
BicyclePA routes and all of the trails and tourism options Pennsylvania provides.

It’s also great to use
along with public transportation — riding your bike to the train or bus terminal and taking public transit the rest of the way.

Witch on a Bicycle | I’m building a car from scratch with zero budget, watch me go insane

Things were bought, (way too much) money was spent. Legs were worn out, and my butt hurts from way too much sitting on deliberately uncomfortable benches. Not joking on that, DART was forced to buy benches that are only comfortable for the short duration so as to discourage homeless people from sleeping on them.

Now for what I bought, I had a coupon for kitchen shears for only $0.39 so I had to get a pair because our current set has gone walkabout. They work OK and did a decent job at cutting the clamshell packaging on the rest of my purchases.

I also had a coupon for a battery charger for $4, but that was a not-so-good purchase. There is a circuit that detects if there is voltage present before sending current to the terminals to prevent overloading the trickle charger, which basically turns it off if you aren’t
