What a difference 15 minutes makes. This morning due to a confluence of events I left for work 15 minutes later than I regularly do. I was instantly reminded why picking your commuting time is almost as important as picking your commuting route. 15 minutes later traffic had increased by at least thirty percent. 15 minutes later I was right-hooked four times in two miles. 15 minutes later, a young lady applying makeup while driving rode dangerously close to my rear wheel for far too long.
When I finally arrived at work I was shocked to see another bike at the rack. For only the tenth time in four years this building’s bike rack is at full capacity-2.
