Some people say, "But Mike! What about busses?" To this I respond "What are busses?" I waited at a 'bus stop' for an hour once and I didn't see a thing.
You know what I do like? A lot? Being completely liberated, able to move freely through traffic, on any street, and go as fast or as slow as I like with the wind in my face and the sun on my skin. Feeling the seamless connection of man an machine, and cracking 30mph before I even get to class. I also like laughing at gridlocked motorists. A lot.
Long story short this is a shameless plug for everyone to get a bike and ride it everywhere all the time like me.
"The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart." ~Iris Murdoch, The Red and the Green
