Matching Game Monday

Here's how it works. Answer each question with a whole number from 0-5 inclusive. No number is used more than once. Today's questions are from the category "Lisa's Cycle Commute"

A) the number of times I had to stop on my way up the hill today

B) the number of time I had to stop on my way home to adjust my pannier rack

C) the number of times I plan to cycle to work this week

D) the approximate speed I maintained at the steepest part of the hill


Imagine Jeopardy music playing while you think about it. Answers are below

A) The correct answer is 0! That, my friends, is a huge milestone. :)

B) The correct answer is 2. Grrrrrrrr. It is user error. I put my new rack on this weekend and gave Husband his back. But I didn't tighten things down enough which caused problems on my ride home. He has since tightened everything for me and I'm sure it will be fine next time.

C) The correct answer is 3. I rode my bike to work today and plan to ride again on both Wed and Thurs. I hope I can keep to the plan!

D) Since the real answer is 4.5, I'll give credit for either 4 or 5. I seriously wonder if it would have been faster to hop off and walk. LOL. In any event, I'll worry about speed later, right now I'm just thrilled that I made it up to the top without having to stop and take a break.


So....How'd you do??

  9. Wow - good for you! My husband is trying out the bike/bus combo for his commute, too - the drawback being the 2 mile long 6% grade to get home from the bus stop. I'll let him know he's in good company!

    I also wanted to thank you for sharing the book with your local elementary school. You can let the librarian know that the school can order a copy through Follett (the company that they most likely use for their other acquisitions). How cool that you have the possibility to have it read to the kids in Spanish, too!!!

    Since the others did not answer in the form of a question, clearly I am the winner ;)

  13. Woo Hoo girl! Good for you for riding to work. I wish I could. Well, I know I could - I just need to plan it on my non-lunch workout days. I only work 3 miles from home (the route I'd ride to get there).

    That's awesome you got up that hill without stopping! You're gonna do great in that metric century!!! I wish I had the guts to sign up for one.

  14. Yay for making it up the hill sans stops!! I'm so impressed with you commuting. The first part - working the kinks out of the routine - are the hardest. Pretty soon that hill is going to be quivering when it sees you zooming towards it!

  15. That was FUN! Thank you.... Need more though as I didn't score too well ;o)

    Looks like you're nailing that commute hill! Great stuff!!
