Bicycling update

I haven't been mentioning this, but we still do it every day. T. has been interested in the Burley Kazoo, so he went to and from school yesterday on it, and to school on it today. He went straight for it when we went for our morning ride. And let me just say, nothing says to a motorist, "You want nothing to do with any accident she/they get into" like a surrey bike and a bright pink skirt.

The only issue was a big black SUV thinking about passing me on Prospect approaching Spencer on the way home. There was a spandex clad guy on a bike coming up Spencer (and, I might add, a huge grin on his face when he saw me), and I took the whole lane so he wouldn't have to stop at the top of the hill. Poor driver. Sometimes I feel like a moving traffic calming device. They may not _feel_ calm but they sure as hell have to slow down.
