    Action shot of me commuting through Seattle

    I had a little extra money lying around, so I hired a cameraman to film myself commuting through downtown Seattle.

    I'm now very impressed with myself; enjoy -

    How do you keep your sneakers so white?
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

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

    You almost had me fooled. But it can't be real. It wasn't raining in Seattle.

    Actually, the most unrealistic thing in the video was the total absence of Subaru Outbacks. I think we hand them out at the city limits to all new residents.

    Well one has to ask "How do you look so young and still post in the +50 Forum?"
    Does riding bikes do that? I can't wait.

    If you rode slicks instead of knobbies this wouldn't happen. What were you thinking?

    It's bikers like you that get the rest of us a bad name.

    Next time that happens, pull out on a side street. Falling space needles don't corner so well.

    Your granddaughter looks cute.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    See where that bmx riding got you? The group dropped you and left you for roadkill. Glad to see you made it out (barely).
