Do you ever feel guilty... (my rant for the day...)
Do you ever feel guilty while riding your bike in traffic - or anywhere where a car has to wait to get around you?
Yesterday I thought it would be a good day to bike to work. So instead of taking my road bike, I took the new (new to me, anyway) MTB that I recently purchased for cheap from a friend. It a much heavier bike, and with my son's kiddie seat on the back, I'm sure I was looking less than "Tour de France" ready. I was much slower on the road than usual...
I found myself feeling guilty as a result. Having to make other people who are trying to get to work or trying to get home wait on me.
On the flip side... some teenage kids threw something at me and hit my left arm. They sped off before I know what happened and could get the license plate number. Others when around me in a fit of anger on a curve, only to nearly miss a head on collision with an on-coming car. I got a little nervous too when a landscaping crew nearly side-swiped me with their trailer...
Ok... well... after typing that, I don't feel so guilty.... never mind!
Happy 4th! (for those of you in the USA!)
