Sure you have to be watching for “things” that can dart out in front of you, but you still want to enjoy the ride. My ride to work is not very long at all. On the really nice days I wish I lived farther away, so I take the long way. People at work always ask me questions about riding and things about my bike. How long have I been riding (over 30 yrs), how did I learn, how many bikes have I had, that sort of thing. I live just outside Chicago and one thing I’ve learned over the years is NEVER assume anybody sees me when I’m on the bike. I think that has kept me out of trouble. I have had my share of scary moments over the years. But it’s nice not to have to mess with changing radio stations, the A/C, just ride and enjoy the ride!
