Chance Interactions

Biking is a social experience.

When I ride my bike, I feel more connected to my surroundings and engaged with the city.  It’s much harder to tune out and much easier to notice the details.  It’s also much easier to interact with others along the way.  This morning two other bike commuters caught up with me at a stoplight on Jefferson and we rode together and chatted for a half-mile or so before splitting off and heading to our respective destinations downtown.

It was a beautiful start to the day, and it never could have happened had we been in cars.
