First the good:
Yesterday I visited a subway station during working hours that I hadn't been to at that time of day in many years. A decade ago there would be maybe 4 bikes parked there. Metro has added new racks since then and the numbers have been increasing. Yesterday, there were many more bikes than official spaces. They were locked against fences signs and railings. The weather forecast was for scattered showers too.
People are learning about bikes as transportation.
Now the bad:
Yesterday some woman layed on her horn and screamed curses at me when I wouldn't let her muscle me out of an intersection. The thing is, I was totally obeying all traffic laws, she wasn't. This kind of thing rarely happens to me. It made me feel like I was visiting the suburbs. My pointing to my green light seemed to infuriate her more. Some people have yet to learn about bikes as transportation.
