Once again, I've thrown off the internally-combusted shackles of the slave-mobile to ride free... on the way to... um... work.
Well, so much for the anti-slavery imagery.
But the fact remains that I got to ride in to work today. And... I stopped to VOTE on the way.
For those of you not in Columbus, it was cold here today for the first time this fall. Cold and clear, and if not for the wind it'd be perfect biking weather. And I got to wear my new Pearl Izumi Vagabond Jacket, which my folks got me for my birthday. It's a bit tight as I think it was built for people wearing regular cycling gear, but the "Screaming Yellow" color and its great wind resistance made it the perfect jacket for riding today.
I got some looks and a couple of "awful cold to be riding your bike" comments at the voting location today, but I just responded with "it's not cold once you get moving." Hopefully that'll get those folks thinking about their sedentary lives.
People, not speed.
