    Which bike did you ride when you went to vote?

    This is what I shall ride when I go to vote in a few minutes.

    It's raining, and the polling place is so close it's not worth it to drag the bike out of the van. So I'm going to walk.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    Instead of using my errand bike for the 3 minute ride to my polling place, I might actually suit up in full kit and ride my racing bike and do a little posing while I'm in line with my stainless mug of coffee.

    Is there an election? What for?

    Best Pie of the year?

    Best entry to Club Tombay?

    Whatever you vote- Make certain it is the right decision.

    The rest of the world will be feeling the effects.

    I rode my daily commuter, which is a bit of a frankenbike, and voted on my way to work this morning. Bike is a Bianchi San Remo touring bike frame. Barcon for the Rder (shimano) downtube shifter for the Fder (Campy), lights like a christmas tree, fenders, panniers and a trunk. Traffic was backed up 1/2 mile from the polling place waiting to be able to get into the parking lot - so it was nice to be able to zip right in!

    I rode my V-Rex. I took half a personal day; gotta take it or lose it, so might as well use it for something like this! Nice day, great 15 mile ride, and I was able to hit the precinct at a very un-busy time.

    Only 3 blocks - an easy walk!

    And, I didn't have to lock up my shoes while I was in voting!

    Beautiful sunny, wind-free, 70° Indian Summer day, so I rode Yellow Bike to work. We stopped to vote on the way home. The table of three election ladies said they liked my hi-viz jersey. But somehow, their eyes kept drifting lower...

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Took the Tour Easy...and as I was re-loading my panniers to head back to work, I discovered that the rear rack is busted.

    That little "I Voted" sticker (aided by a zip tie or two) is now the only thing holding the rack together.

    I'm ashamed to say that since it was blowing about 30 mph and raining at 42 degrees I opted for the wife's Scooter to go the 6 blocks.

    Wimp!

    We vote by mail or drop sites. Here is what I rode down to the local library to put our votes in the ballot box.

    I walked the 8 blocks to the polling place, then walked the same blocks back to the subway.

    I rode my department store Magna Great Divide.

    Let's see, that was 5.8 miles to the polling place, another 3.9 to the public library to use the computers, and 4.2 home from there, for a total of 13.9 mi. It got a bit overcast late in the day, but it was otherwise a beautiful ride.

    I voted by mail, but had I bicycled to the polls, the choice would have been obvious.
