Do You Bike To Save Money? (+ Sweepstakes!)

Can a Bike Save You Money?

Do you bike to work, school, or around town to save money on gas?  Last year I bought a bike to do just that.  But not only did I want to save money, I also picked up a bike for fitness, too.  With a little extra time, I can bike down to the local grocery store, enjoy the fresh air, save some money in gas, and put in 15-20 min of solid, calorie-burning exercise–all at the same time.  That’s what I would call efficiency.  Here, I’ll give you some reasons why I ride a bike, and a sweepstakes to win a brand-new bike.

So with that, here’s my top reasons why you should ride a bike. 

Ultimate K-cup Brewing Guide – Free e-book!


If you have a Keurig, then this e-book is a must for you!  I have been tempted to get a Keurig myself, but I have gone a different route on coffee-making (cold-brewed coffee–more on that later).  But after reading this free e-book on Keurig K-cup coffee brewing, I might end up getting one just for the occasional cup of specialty k-cup flavors.

Cross Country Cafe has put this excellent guide together for you to get the most out of your Keurig, and I can’t recommend this enough.  They’re even offering an exclusive coupon when you download the free e-book.
