Every morning on my way to work I roll past the beautiful San Jose Heritage Rose Garden. This spring I’ve been too busy with Bike to Shop Day, fighting for bikes in the El Camino corridor and launching new products at work to stop once (and I’m not done yet). Today I stopped anyway. The hybrid tea roses and the grandifloras are spent, but the floribundas are still going strong. I smelled the floribundas, then rolled on to get back to work.
About the Bike Commute Diaries: Launched in May 2012 for National Bike Month, this series explores the unexpected and surprising things I’ve seen and learned while bicycling for transportation.
