Not strictly a commute, but...

I love my folding bike. Today I will ride roughly what was my old commute route to meet-up with a friend and his car, in which we will place my folder of course, and the TV of another friend, a very generous one, who is giving it away. I was bummed thinking I wouldn't get a ride today because of the TV pickup but it dawned on me that we're probably putting the TV on the back seat of the car so there's room for my folder in the trunk. Wo0t!

I believe that's what they call serendipity. Then again, I'll believe anything.

Dude, you need to show that folder some love. Take it for a ride out to Coney, eat some hot dogs and fried clams at Nathan's and ride the Cyclone a few times, then get some knishes at Mrs. Stahl's, some cheesecake at Juniors, some pizza at Difara's, then ride home. God, I miss Brooklyn.

LOL funny you should mention that because I did ride it on the 5BBC "Lights in the Heights" ride in Dyker Heights. We went to Nathan's there, in fact (I know, not the original). No hot dogs for this vegetarian, but the fries were good.
