Three cool things on my commute

1) In Kensington, a cute little tot (girl, 8-10 years) on a Brompton. On her own, in school uniform.
2) Hyde Park Corner: another mezzo, with the same commuter trunk bag I purchased last week.
3) By the time I get home tonight, it will be 100 miles of folding cycle commuting this week - and Monday was a holiday!

I like your post. I'll add my own "3 cool things on my commute". T hese are general and daily, though but what the heck:

1) bus drivers that let me fold and bring my Tikit onto the bus. Only one has hassled me, and she relented

2) The guy who hands out the "Express" newspaper (mini Washington Post) to commuters and always chats with me when I pull up to the train station or calls out to me if I ride past to the next station.

3) Riding up to the front door of the office, then wheeling my bike to the office closet. No hunting for a parking space!
