Ok, so I know, I know! I said this would be about my writing and writing only. No tangents. No rants about religious folks (I’ve been good about that, haven’t I?). No rants period.
This morning, on my way into work, I got passed by another cyclist. This chick was fast. The mist fogging my glasses was dampening my mood and when she passed me, I immediately ramped up my speed and chased her tail. I got to her cruising speed and maintained a distance of about 100 feet between us. It felt good. I starting to hope that I’d catch her every morning and we could ride together. It would up my game and maybe I could get in some sprint training.
The light ahead turned red. We started to slow. And then she did something that just made my blood boil. She looked behind her, scanned above the cars to her left and then RAN THE RED LIGHT.
My jaw dropped. WTF? Really! How could she! I felt like tapping the window of the car next to me and say, “Did you just see that?” Come on, all you cyclists out there. If you want drivers to respect you, respect the law.
