I was riding to work on the first commuter train of the morning when my favorite conductor walked through the train, announcing that an airplane had crashed into the WTC. When I arrived at work, I set up the 5" black-and-white TV I had been storing in my office, propped the door open, and invited other folks in the building to pop in and watch the news from time to time during the day.
I never have a problem deciding which bike to ride on 9/11, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, etc. -- my red, white, and blue Schwinn, purchased 15 years ago from a San Diego firefighter, is the obvious choice.
