Bike Commute Diaries: It Never Rains in California

03 May

It does rain, but not as much as the weatherman would have you believe. If it’s not raining in the morning I will ride, regardless of the afternoon forecast. I don’t care if it rains on the way home, where I have dry clothes and a warm shower. After two rainy seasons, I’ve only gotten wet a handful of times. This is California, after all.


About the Bike Commute Diaries: In honor of National Bike Month, I’m sharing 31 short, sweet and surprising things I’ve discovered about bike commuting, one for each day in May. Happy National Bike Month!

      Thanks. I’m sure Dan told you I ran into him on the train. He seemed surprised that I would take the extra ride up to Redwood City to take the photo.

      I was pleased how it turned out. I got lucky that the sun was behind me and the wide sidewalk was pretty open and I didn’t have to wait long for a southbound train to get home.

Fix The Toaster

Nearly 32,000 Americans die in car crashes annually. 80% of car crashes are PREVENTABLE. If the TOASTER was killing that many people we'd think it was ridiculous. We'd un-plug it and say, let's Fix The Toaster.
