Today, tooling my way through town at around noon, I ran across an impromptu bike gathering in front of the court house-a whole bunch of us! Q even pop up out of nowhere. It is extra fun when we come across each other unexpectedly on our bikes, a bonus bright spot ona ride.
I think this is a great sign for this year's biking season to have a group converge like this. We were able to take a moment to visit and meet some fellow bikers. The friendliness of bikes!
Many of this group was being led by Anthony Green, a biking force unto himself. He has commuted to work without missing a day for about 7 or 8 years now. I didn't get a picture of him but I promise to do a whole post with his story.

I started riding my bike as my primary form of transportation because I love riding bikes. Add in all the wonderful benefits- you know the drill-exercise, money saving, pollution free, oil free, and all the other great things, it just seemed a reasonable choice.
But what I had not anticipated was how different life would look mounted on top of a bike verses looking out of a rolling metal box. The places I go, the people I meet, the things I see are so different. And I love it all.
This is a record of my adventures!
