Bike Commute Diaries: In the Still of the Night

26 May

There was a sticker on my new bike: “Night riding is dangerous.” Not so, I say. After the frenzy of the evening commute has ended and folks have cleaned up the dinner dishes and turned into couch potatoes, the streets become a magically calm bicycle paradise. (Just don’t forget your lights)

    ? Did someone spam your bike, or did it come with the sticker?
    I love that intersection. So festive. :)

      I took the sticker off my bike so fast I don’t remember the exact wording. I got the wording here from a google image search of “bike warning stickers” There was another variation I saw that was worse: “Do Not Ride At Night”
