So you’re driving down the freeway or a busy city street and your phone makes that irresistible sound: whoop! It’s a text message, probably from the friend you’re driving to meet. Or you’re lost and you need to read the map and there’s nowhere to pull over. So irritating! But rarely a problem for me when I’m riding my bike.
About the Bike Commute Diaries: Launched in May 2012 for National Bike Month, this series explores the unexpected and surprising things I’ve learned about bicycling for transportation.
