Back to Bike

If anyone was wondering about the cliffhanger of Monday’s post, I did not ride my bike to work.  As many of you mentioned in the comments, it was not worth the risk of leaving my bike parked outside downtown overnight.  Of course, as life goes, the snow storm did not begin until later in the night, when I was safely home.

Riding the L train is a great back-up option, though.  As a bonus, at the L station I got to shake Rahm Emanuel’s hand, as he greeted the commoners and kissed babies and such.  I wanted to say, “More bike lanes!” but all that came out was, “Oh, hai!”

Today I was back on my bike.  Yay, bike!  Above is an unglamorous representation of my winter wear, hat, helmet, scarf and all.

Tomorrow I’m flying out to North Carolina to be with my wonderful family for Christmas.  I haven’t seen them since last year, so I’m very excited!  Too bad I don’t have a folding bike to take with me.

Happy Holidays!

    Merry Christmas Dottie,

    Maybe a Brompton for Christmas next year? That will certainly be number one on my wish list, but first things first, and I will have to try hard to get off the naughty list before then.

    I hope you have a great time with your family,

    A folding bike it’s very useful indeed! My Brompton has been the best birthday present ever!
    Happy Holiday!

    Dottie: Thought of you this a.m. when a photo of Rahm greeting commuters appeared on the front page of the New York Times. Happy holidays and thanks for your fun and inspiring posts throughout the year!
