Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
I live in SF and it is very fun to ride a bike all over the place. The ocean to the bay and in between is action packed. Transit snarls, wind and funny things all over the place. SF is a small town and you can expect certain things in the many different parts of town and a whole bunch of surprises. Toss in a bunch of excellent waves amongst fellow riders—it is great. A couple of yells at assholes and you’ve cleansed your soul.
What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
My favorite city to ride in is too hard to pick. I like to ride a bike everywhere I go. Most of my playpals like to ride with me so I usually have a lot of fun seeing the sites cruising.
Why do you love riding in the city?
I love riding in the city because it is electric. The action is intense as well as the tactical reality of safety. I support all modes of transport and ride to share the road. I am not an angel though and I often am very vocal if there is impending danger or an obvious lack of neighborly street sharing. I enjoy being open and free on my bicycle ride.
Here is a lovely poem that I wrote for you:
When I glide
I ride to fly
My heart my bike
Joy pedal sky
