Big Goal for local Bike Commuter

From the Boulder Weekly

I love to ski. I’m concerned about climate change. And I have an old car with nearly 200,000 miles on it.

So what do these three things have in common? Not much — except that they are all related to a goal I set in March to commute by bike this summer the equivalent number of miles that I drove to go skiing last winter.
....
I did the math and figured that I drove 1,950 miles to ski last winter (it’s 65 miles round-trip from my house in Lafayette to Eldora). My bike commute to my full-time job in East Boulder is 16 miles round-trip, which means I would have to ride about 120 days in 2013 to make up for the driving during the 2012-13 winter. This was a huge increase from the summer before, when I biked to work about 40 days. Could I do it?
