{{{{{{BOING}}}}}}

Bike commuters don't usually mind a little bit of adversity. Things like rain, cold, wind, traffic and all those other maladys can be fun when they happen occasionally. None of us want to put ourselves at risk of getting clobbered, but occasionally we do happen into a predicament.

My commute starts and end with a 30 mile drive to the mall, followed by a ten mile bike ride. The bike part can be one of those, "I stand a good chance of getting hit", rides. It's dark during the inward bound ride, and the last part of the homeward part is on very busy road during twilight. With all that in mind, I don't commute from November till sometime in late January early February.

Last night I was walking the dogs and came across a young neighbor. He knows my commuting habit and with the unusually fair weather the next few days asked if I was riding.
"No, not yet" I answered, and went on to explain the hazzards of the road and darkness.

"Why don't you leave a little later and park closer", he asked?

I rode my bike to work today. Five miles.

  4. I'm glad to hear you're on the road again. I find talking to other people helps me identify things that I can't figure out on my own. I find that frustrating sometimes. Other times, I'm just thankful for the help.

  5. I admire you perseverance for combining driving and riding. I think I missed you driving references along the way. If it were me, I doubt I would do both, out of laziness mostly. The best decision of my life was to move from a 45-mile commute to a 6-mile one. I'll take the bike any day, and your 5-mile ride is better than none. Peace and have fun.

  11. To be a upright charitable being is to from a kind of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an cleverness to group aleatory things beyond your own manage, that can front you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptional circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something very impressive about the condition of the ethical compulsion: that it is based on a conviction in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a prize, something fairly fragile, but whose mere particular handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
