I had a good week of riding to work, including Bike To Work Day. 18+ miles each way, fixed, every single day. Flipped one guy off, flirted with a car full of cute girls, and had a nice woman offer to throw away the nail I picked up at a traffic light.
I figured out how to successfully and safely enter Rohnert Park from the North (use the inside turn lane, because every single person in the outside turn lane is getting on the freeway).
Bike to Work Day started with hearing a fellow manning the coffee station sharing his opinions. See if you can fill in the blanks.
“I think fixies are ridiculous. Because, like, brakes. Duh. And they’re terrible for your knees.”
I think the gist is that fixies are just so unfashionable, now.
