Wow! That evening I was home so fast that I had to ride around the block a few times. I did not want to get off my bike. And that was it — I was hooked. I have used my bicycle to get to work every single day since.
The first time it rained I put on my husband’s Polaris from his downhill racing days and rode to work. The jacket was no longer waterproof. My Facebook status that morning was “Rode my bicycle to work in the rain wearing a jacket that is no longer waterproof. It was still better than being in a car.”
