to bike or not to bike
ok, i will straight up admit it. I am a fair-weather, poser bicyclist.
I only ride my bike to work when the sun is shining, and when i do ride it, I only pretend to know the fancy hand signals and bike etiquette.
and today, as I was riding with a skirt on, because i forgot, and not because i am an exhibitionist.
I got scolded by another biker for not being cautious.
I mean yeah… when I’m riding I’m cautious and aware.
but when I’m just rolling out of my driveway, I revert to the days of old when I could just roll out of my driveway without much care in the world.
anyways, all that to say, it ain’t easy being a biker in a biker world like Portland.
so much stigma to live up to…
