If You Were Me

The other day I vented to an acquaintance about an issue that’s frustrated me this winter. However, this led to several more issues for me to be frustrated about.

If You Were Me

For a moment I actually felt bad for picking this battle.

But I knew this person. And if she were me, it would go like this.

If You Were Me

Yes, and drivers wouldn’t take this sort of response either.

So I made a resolution to speak up more. I don’t deserve to be treated as lesser than other commuters.

    If anyone bikes around where I live (Midwest) they’re going to be parking their bikes in the building where they work at. That’s what I usually do. And I’ve seen many others do the same thing.

    I’m a recent transplant to Boston, and I found it surprising and frustrating how often I had to take the lane on otherwise “bike-friendly” roads, merely because road plowing does not extend to ALL the lanes on the road (LIKE THE ONE I AM RIDING IN RIGHT NOW, OR WOULD BE, IF IT WAS NOT FULL OF SNOW).

    Sigh. Good post.

    You forgot all of the snowplows that ‘plow’ the bike racks.
    That is, they plow right into them, and destroy them!
