So I'm going in to work on my once or twice/week 44 mile round trip commute and I can't help but notice how many more bikes are on the road. Usually I'll see two or three other cyclists and that's in the city. This morning I'm passing moms on cruisers during rush hour traffic on country roads. At one particularly bad intersection, where I'm usually trapped between a bus and a dump truck, I'm sitting at the light behind four other cyclists. I drafted the last mile behind a hipster fixie. Then, after a shower and changing, I walked into Harvard Square and was greeted by a crowd of Freds scooping up free swag, coffee and bagels. I asked another cyclist what the heck was going on and he says "Bike to Work Week, free breakfast for bike commuters."
Sometimes Massachusetts is just so cool.
p.s. I know, I'm clueless.
