Hi, blog readers! I’ve added an additional provision in the Utilitaire Rules.
While the name of the game in the Utilitaire 12 is ride your bike, I also recognize the following things:
- It’s winter so there may be inclement weather that prevents a person from riding;
- Some people have jobs that require them to travel and they can’t always bring their bikes along; and
- A major mechanical could require your bike to be in the shop and leave you sans bike.
To account for these situations, I will allow for two of your utilitaires to be by foot. Your walk must at least 10 minutes each way, for a total of 20 minutes.
How did I decide on ten minutes? It passed my personal commen sense test in its comparability to the minimum utilitaire travel time on a bike.
All other Utilitaire rules apply. I will also update the Utilitare Rules accordingly. Happy riding (and walking)!
You are a most kind and benevolent ruler of the oddball challenges.
That comment (which cracked me up) is the nicest thing anyone’s said to me today! Why thank you!
Wait, there are people who only have one bike?!? 😉
so, like, when Bleriot goes in for its major tuneup next week, I can ride to the bike shop and walk home? Sweet!
