A basic commute today, again with mega-temps- 100F on the side temp ticker. Today I felt better during the ride but was damn hot at home. I ended up having a cool shower to both rinse off the significant sweat I had accumulated and cleanse my hot-weather funk.
- I was complimented this morning on my Serfas taillight by a driver. "That red light's a good idea!". I thanked him and was happy that it's working in the early morning hours.
- A work colleague passed me about .75m from work. She was shocked to find that I was in the front office before she was. Actually I had the chance to sign in and check my mail before I greeted. I like this example of efficiency is the face of the seemingly obvious fact that bikes are "slower" than cars.
- The CJ ran an article today about the new program of Sharrows, these especially being timely for the negligent death of a cyclist this summer. They're being painted on the 2nd-Street bridge first, the site of the "accident". This is the only means for cyclists to cross the Ohio River in this area. I don't know if it's of any use, but something is better than nothing.
