I spent a few years in Detroit bicycle commuting 7 miles each way to and from work.

I really should write about my experiences one day.

The scariest thing that ever happened to me was being shot with paintballs.

The creepiest thing that ever happened to me is that I passed an active murder scene without realizing it.

The coolest thing that ever happened to me is that I learned to commute even in the middle of severe thunderstorms without caring if I got wet.

Of course I had the luxury of a private office and a shower at work.

I’m feeling the need to get back into bicycling again!
