I’m am, or used to be before it was all canceled, a touring musician. I’ve spent a ton of time traveling the world, and to see the way many places use bicycles is really interesting and cool to me. I love the cargo bikes and family bikes you see in some places. I’ve spent a lot of time in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, etc and these places are kind of bicycle utopias with few cars, little pollution, and likely a whole lot safer roads.

Just so you know, someone rides their bike to Berklee [not a mispeeling] with their contrabass.

We do it here and now.

Exactly. Who are these people saying you can't? And why are you listening to them at all?
