Today was my second day of riding to work after being sick all last week, and although I'm still hacking and wheezing a fair bit, I hadn't had a real coughing fit while riding (the kind that leaves me doubled over) until tonight. Pedestrians were turning to look at me in horror, wondering who let me out of the sanatorium and why the hell I was on a bike. I had to pull over to get breath back finally. I'm about done with being sick!
On a more pleasant note, two happy surprises courtesy of the City of Cambridge Public works!
They filled the enormous, bike eating pothole at Broadway and Galileo Galilei road, and the less gaping, but more entrenched one half a block east. This morning, I was treated to a freshly swept bike lane- so fresh I could still see the wet track the sweeper left behind- ah bliss!
I sent the CPW two "thank you" emails- positive conditioning and all that.
big bad bike building post still in the works- but since I just got home at 9pm, I'm gonna eat dinner and sleep instead of blog.
