That’s Crazy Talk!

May 17, 2004

So apparently the week of May 17-21 is National Bike to Work Week.

And I’m considering doing it.

The big problem, of course, is that I suck and bicycling. From the house to work, it is a ten mile journey. My five-milers leave me dead. And the ride home, well, it’s all uphill.

So I’m considering cheating. Parking at a park about two and a half miles from work and biking it from there. Not only am I pretty sure I could at least manage that, but I’d avoid the worst of the traffic on Lamar, too.

    The “keep austin wierd” crowd would call you a poseur and probably throw rotten organic tomatoes at you from the roof of the whole foods market.
    I fully support your plan.

    I don’t know, Austin has some weird subversive plan to turn everybody into Lance Armstrong.

    Almost makes you wonder if they aren’t paying him to say he lives here and he loves it…
