Pros and Cons of Biking to Campus

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Saff @ 11:07 am

This quarter I have taken to biking pretty much everywhere. It’s spring quarter and I figured the weather would be nice enough and this way I can get some exercise in every day. But last night I finally got a bunch of music that I have been meaning to get for a while and I’m pretty much attached to my iPod now (not to mention I also got a new iPod touch, so I’m pretty attached as it is already haha). However, I can’t bike and listen to my music! Well, I could do the whole one earbud in one ear thing, but I still feel like I shouldn’t. So I felt like I should make a pro/con list. Or maybe a pro/pro list of biking pros and walking/busing pros.

Why I like Biking:

  • I’m on my on schedule. I can leave whenever I want, bike faster if I’m late, I don’t need to base my life around the bus schedule.
  • I get exercise! Lord knows I need to do that more haha.
  • It’s fun! The wind in my hair, sun in my face! Ah, and it’s spring time, so it should be beautiful out (someone remind Davis weather that it should be BEAUTIFUL! less wind plskthx).
  • Makes getting across campus easier when I only have a few minutes between things.
  • I’m saving the environment! I’m saving the entire world!
  • I have a shiny road bike. It goes fast.
  • It also makes me feel cool. hah

Why I’m Starting to Want to Bus/Walk Again:

  • I can use busing time to read/catchup for class.
  • I can listen to my music while I bus/walk.
  • Walking is exercise too. And I’m still outside in the beautiful spring time-ness (again, less wind pls).
  • I don’t have to worry about getting sweaty from biking too fast when I’m late.
  • I can also play my silly iPod touch games on the bus.

It looks like biking is still winning. Though I guess it would be better to make con lists as well, but it might be pretty redundant.

I will attempt this after class.
