- I had to shower twice (no one wants to sit by someone that's just been biking for an hour and a half, including my dog)
- I did not bring my lunch (figured that I really didn't want to carry any extra weight), so I had to buy...extra trash generated!
- I was super hungry from burning all those calories, so I bought a second breakfast (yum) and a snack...more extra waste!
- My sunglasses fell off and got smashed by a car (I left them there as I did not want to also be smashed by a car)...litter and waste of money!
Overall, I think the reduction in carbon emissions probably outweighs the extra trash and water useage...but, it's still not quite a zero!!
