I think that it's great that your riding your bike downtown, keep up the good work, good on you, really I mean that. Just one small request, when it's time to lock up your bike and you lock up on a bike rack in front of a bar just for one second consider that besides paying for the bike rack the owner of the bar for years and years paid for a permit to have that rack outside of his bar. Go in buy a drink or stop parking there because you're taking a space from someone who goes there or works there and helps pay for that rack either kick in or fuck off. In a real city I'd double lock your ass.
Feel the pavement when you bounce from it, hear the engine of a car roaring behind you, answer the static coming from your two-way, embrace the corner of the box that craves your spine while you´re carrying it in your bag, taste the cold and yet sweet taste of beer when it sparkles in your mouth.
