I’ve been trying to bike too and from work at least once a day for the month of august. Most of the time, it’s been good… I put on an audio book and pedal. Yesterday it was garbage day, which wasn’t awesome, because as I’m driving i’m catching a whiff of every house’s take out leftovers. I distinctly remember some sort of curry, lasagne, and one house was particularly citrus-ey.
That which is pictured in the comic also happens with regularity… those little mobility scooters take up a lot of space in the bike lane. The bike lane is smoother than the side walk, so I can understand why seniors would use it, the only problem being they aren’t exactly easy to pass, and they don’t drive super consistently. For example! sometimes, they just stop. for no reason. OR! they put it in reverse cause they wanted to see something posted on an electric pole. You can imagine how it might be problematic to have someone you’re following suddenly and without warning throw their vehicle into full-speed reverse.
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
