    Sadly, today turned out to be one of the rare days where my schedule made it impossible to ride. Bike-share would have worked perfectly.

    I haven’t noticed anything different about my commute today, other than the TA set up by the bridge. It didn’t seem like a lot more people rode today.

  • A big round of applause to Mr. Van Bramer and his staff for cycling to work today. Why am I not surprised that the council member with the Dutch name is the one cycling to work?

    Mr. Van Bramer’s bicycle also appears to be the only one with fenders. The other four bicycles in the photo are useless for all-weather riding, unless I work at an office where having a stripe of road grime and mud showered up my back constitutes acceptable office attire.
