Today was my first time riding my bike to work! Yeah!
It also happened to be Bike To Work Day throughout the SF Bay Area.
Because I’m a cautious cat and highly sensitive to inner city pressure, I had waited for this very day to make the leap from casual biker to urban commuter.
Prior to this, I even made sure to attend an urban bicycling safety class provided by the SF Bike Coalition. Yup.
I mean yeah, I’ve ridden bikes in traffic before. But never in a city like San Francisco. With all the hills and the trams and the freaking cars, cars, cars everywhere.
Bike To Work Day is perfect for first time commuters like me.
