Commuting by Bicycle – A Love/Hate Relationship

I was going to write a post about a love/hate relationship with bicycle commuting.  As I tried to write it, I realized I don’t hate anything about bicycle commuting itself.  I have a problem with closed-minded idiots.  They can ruin anything, not just bicycling.

Anyway, I’m not going to write about closed-minded idiots.  It’s the same old story.

I rode to work and back on Monday.  Tuesday was very rainy, and I drove.  Today, I rode in the wet, sticky snow, and had a blast.

When I arrived to work (with snow sticking to me and my bike), I got on the elevator with the president of my organization.  He probably thinks I’m mad, and I can’t say that’s a bad thing.  🙂

When nearly home from work, I stopped at the grocery store to grab a few things, and the cashier asked how far I live from the store.  I replied “Just under a mile, but I rode here from Louisville.  I was on my way home.”  She thinks I’m crazy now too.  🙂

  1. I agree with tim, yours is the right kind of crazy, you love commuting by bike, we all love it, but to the uninitiated it seems strange and weird. We’ve all broken out of the cocoon of the car to be free, you just have to feel sorry for those who just can’t see it.

  2. I am going to be writing on my blog this weekend, hopefully, of my return from a three week hiatus from bike commuting. Started a new job, etc. I wasn’t sure how it was going to work out, but after a conversation with the CEO of the new company, I’m starting back to riding on Monday. Can’t wait! I’m with you–there is nothing I don’t like about commuting by bicycle.
