So for the first time I actually rode all the way from home
to work--took me about an hour. I went from a suburban
community through some ag land, through West Sacramento
and then through downtown. A few humorous things happened--
first I got dropped by a guy commuting on a single-speed fixed
gear Mixte. Granted I had about 20 lbs of junk I was carrying
(work clothes, dress shoes, reference book, a lot of water,
tools)--then the cops yelled at me for riding my bike through
the L St. Mall. Now I need a shower. . .
