I have much I want to post about but little time so here's a few small things that couldn't really be stand-alone posts....
Here's my Facebook status today:
Sara thinks bike commuting with kids can be good for one's self-esteem. While riding to school today with two boys sitting on the snapdeck of the Xtracycle, a woman rolled up beside her in a fancy gold car and said, "I just have to tell you-- You are fabulous!"
Cycling downtown this afternoon, I stopped behind a public bus and got a glimpse of CT DOT's new ad campaign with a car and a bike pictured and a saying that reads: 3FT IS NOT JUST A CUSHION. IT'S THE LAW. Too bad I didn't have a camera handy to capture the image but I will be on the look-out to do so at another time.
Here's an image from one of their past campaigns:
Yesterday, I woke up in the morning to C standing by the windows in my bedroom, looking out at the raging storm. "I'm really sorry, Mom," he sighed, "but it's thunder and lightening and it looks like we are going to have to take the car to school today. I'm really sorry we can't ride our bike."
