The trick to any commuter is being prepared. Carry an extra tube and a pump or Co2 inflator(that's what I use) and the flat tire issue is solved. I finally read that your a woman.. carry bear spray. I actualy have it on my handlebars as I type and I'm a 6'2" 259 pound guy. My theory is that after I tell one of the *******s that screams/spits at me to **** off he's gonna pull over and escalate the situation... at which point I'm going to spray him and everyone in his outfit with a full magnum can of Counter Assault. Now I'm sure I will never actaully have to do this but it's all about the feeling of security. Bright lights and a defensive riding style go a long way also.
