I should emphasize that I don't feel endangered in the city often. I felt it more in the New Jersey suburbs. It's just that the congestion here is horrific. And bad congestion leads people to use bad judgment.

Today I rode on my old commuting route plus a little, and I went right back. The ride out was with the wind, and the ride back was against the wind. I see the speed difference in ridewithgps, of course.

I applied for readmission to my old college on Tuesday. So I don't know what combination of work and school I'll have yet. But I'm super excited. I suspended my college pursuit over 30 years ago. It felt great to be back on the campus I attended (Hunter College of CUNY) so long ago.

I just applied for a job at Barnard College, which is at Columbia University, which is where I was working most recently. The commute to Columbia is ideal, all along the bike path. I really hammered on that route today, and it felt great compared with riding in motor traffic. The Hudson River Greenway is a heaven of a bike commuter route.
