life on a bicycle

The maiden voyage of my bicycle commute went well today. I took it slowly and cautiously for the first trip, making the 3.6 miles in just under 30 minutes (roughly twice as fast as it would take me to walk and half as fast as it would take to drive). I'm sure I could shave considerable time off that if I challenge myself a little. I also pretty much kept to the traffic laws, stopping at all the red lights, unlike most of my fellow bikers who dart through any opening they see. And I took my time locking it up, a process that will surely go smoother as I get more practice. All in all, I feel confident that riding to work will become as fast as taking the subway. Not to mention, being far healthier and more enjoyable.
