Had a great commute on the Crosscheck, on which I mounted new PlanetBike Fenders last night. After having lots of crap sprayed on me this wet winter every bike worth shit gets fenders if possible. 2 experiences: 2 possible titles.
Amanda rocks the Cat 6
On the way home I ran into a woman on a commute- nice reflective best- on Payne. I'm pretty sure it's local advocacy pro Amanda. I was already feeling spritely today so I was rocking the bigger gear than usual heading down towards Spring and the Beargrass Trail. Amanda on what looked like a comfort, commuter hybrid stayed pretty close. She's Cat 6. I'm an amateur.
Tyranny of the Majority
As I turned onto the Beargrass Trail up the hillette towards the underpass I saw a disturbing sight. I-64 was completely stopped, pairs, masses of red taillights shining in all directions. I thought of all the poor morons in their cars getting madder and madder at being absolutely stuck. I was on 2 wheels feeling the winter chill and moving to stave off all things bad. What a contrast!
