Well, at least it was raining pretty hard when I woke up this morning. So that's my lame(ish) excuse for not riding into work today. The last two days were awesome though! I'm so glad that I did; the days were warm and sticky and so was I upon arrival at the bike shop, but it was well worth it.
Why do you ride?
Why don't you ride?
I made a new riding acquaintance Thursday on my trip in. His name is Ross and I encountered him on 32nd St. just off of Woolworth. He was jumping a curb to get off of the street and cut over to the sidewalk before jumping back into the street as I was turning North. Getting a little extra adrenaline out of his a.m. commute, I guess. So, me being me, I asked him where he was going and how often he commutes. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he rides to his job at 13th and Farnam from 42nd and Center almost every day! You go Ross!! We chatted for a few blocks and then I continued on my way. He was on a pretty old mountain bike with slick tires; he thankfully was sporting a helmet and full messenger bag.
Good for you Ross, keep on pedaling. So will I.
