Bikes, bikes and more bikes!

I was up late last night working on a proposal for something that I'm happy to say panned out quite well. In fact, today has been nothing short of awesome for a multitude of reasons I won't bother enumerating here. Suffice it to say, I am happy and will refrain from using sarcasm for the day. Oh, and my *everything* hurts from my wimpy workout yesterday. But that's okay. Because life rocks for now.

We cyclists had a unique "problem" at the bus this morning. Lorin and John C were both waiting at the bus stop with their bikes. This doesn't surprise me. John C and I were both on the bus with our bikes yesterday and Lorin usually takes an earlier bus. Today, Lorin had agreed to meet me for coffee. That means trying to get three bicycles on a rack made for two.

That didn't happen. John C brought his singlespeed on board the crowded bus. I think he got the short end of the stick because he's the skinny one who happened to be the most unburdened of the three of us. We all gathered for some pre-work caffeination with JR -- who hadn't shown up by the time I took this picture, but he'd have parked out of fram anyway.

I've been seeing more bike commuters lately -- many of them are of the suit- and business-casual attire wearing variety. It could be due to the lofts downtown, or due to transit. Regardless, more and more people are riding downtown with every passing week, so it seems. I would have taken more photos but I was all out of battery by the time I took the one above.

Also, fellow bicycle commuter, security nerd and blogger Jason would like some help trying to identify another bicycle commuter who got taken to the hospital on his watch a few days ago. I'm not one to tell people what to do or how to ride, but seriously? Helmet: Good

I have noticed that in July (Tour de France) there are a lot more bikes out. I think it's great for cycling.
