Ride to Work

I've got to give it to cyclists who pedal to work. It takes some fearlessness in this city. I experienced that today with my first 14-mile (round trip) sidewalk ride to work. In addition to maneuvering around rough sidewalks and inattentive drivers I learned:

Thought is required for clothing and shoes that transition from riding to the workplace

I need to allow a full hour to make it to my office on time

A pant leg flapping in the wind will invariably end up in the chain!
