Actually had to slam on my brakes twice this morning. Not sure if that means I'm riding faster or if today was just one of those days. The bike stopped nice and fast, no loss of control at all. Once was for a car running a red light and the other for a jay walker. It was a good ride otherwise, excepting the usual cars parked in the bike lane. Riding home can still be a challenge though because there isn't one street in Center City with a southbound bike lane, which combines with rush hour traffic to equal a lot of sidewalk riding.
