I had a good day with only some car-related issues. Here in Ca., we're all meant to 'share the road', but that's easier said than done. What freaked me out most was the ride back home. Our most direct route down Ralston Rd. put us perilously close to cars. Never mind that this street is meant to be 'bike friendly'. There's no dedicated bike lane for most of it, and the motorists fly down the hill like they're drag racing at Sear's Point. Couple cars vying for pole position with those who think they're Bradley Wiggins on two wheels and one has a recipe for disaster. I walked my bike, like a goat, down the hill until a bike lane was visible, then rode the last one-mile stretch home. As it was Sunday, today's car count was minimal, but that didn't stop me from deciding to walk rather than compete for street space with the likes of this (see: video).
