Well, those of you that are anti-car may not want to hear this (and this may be moved), but:
I totalled my truck last Thursday night on my way to work. For a long time now, work is really the only place I've been driving, and I've toyed with the idea that MAYBE when my truck konks out on me I'd just ride my bike. However, my truck being pretty new and in good condition still, I thought that this'd be years in the future. Now I'm faced with it, though. At the very least, I'll be commuting by bike for the next few days/weeks...
Anyone else have a similar story? (I'm sure)
I don't know why I'm posting this, just talkin' I guess. Figures I also got bumped on my bike by a motorist last week, also.
I live about 12 miles from work, 3rd shift. I'm glad it'll be only in the low 20's I guess.
Honestly, I'm kinda nervous about this riding to work and home in the middle of the night through some questionable neighborhoods...I wonder if going stealth and doing backroads would be better?
Thanks guys, and be careful out there. Not to sound like your mom or anything.
