My commute on Tuesday had me waiting on the wrong-way Caltrain platform with a zone upgrade in hand. In 45 minutes I was in San Francisco, pedaling up the Embarcadero for a business meeting at our advertising agency. I locked my bike to a rack on the street in full view of our conference room and walked inside.
During my meeting, three employees in this small shop rolled in on their bikes, and I met the agency president who commutes by skateboard. After the meeting I rode back to Caltrain, and left my heart in San Francisco.
