    Better question:

    What ISN'T awesome about riding a bike?

    Well, besides getting hit by idiot drivers.

    "Oh thank God/Satan/Zeus/Quetzalquotal that my lock has not been cut," is never fun. Relieving, but not exactly fun.

    I have the most fun riding to/from class.
    The bums will always lose.

    I saw a bike the other day that someone had duct taped some cardboard on the fork and seatpost for mudguards. That can't be EFFECTIVE at ****ing all.

    Blasting out of work late at night (I work at a movie theater) onto a barren Main St. and flying through town not having to worry about cars... That's always so fun because I'm psyched to be out of work and even more psyched to bike home in those conditions...

    OR! Going TO work during rush hour / school getting out and weaving through each neighborhood faster than any car could ever hope to go in all that traffic, watching jealous drivers stopped in a gridlocked traffic light...

    Best part is when a random cute girl comes up to you and makes small talk. Even better when there are a bunch of "brahs" around with fancy clothes, SUVs with rims, popped collars, faux-hawks, etc.

    I had this girl walk up to me while I was outside working on my bike. Her only statement was, "Now that's what I call a bike." I shoulda got her digits.
