And then at the first light, I was joined by this lovely lady, who not only bikes in her work clothes (from Arlington no less) but who observes the same no filtering policy that I do.
We rode and chatted together for a while, although it's tough in traffic. I believe she said her name was Jen, If I'm wrong and you know her, let me know!
I just found out that there's an urban planning/ bike-ped facilities engineering company just down the street from my office, which I bet is a source of a lot of the cool bikes in my office neighborhood. I wish I'd asked her if that was where she worked. It would be fun to get to know those people- I bet we'd have a lot in common. If anyone works at Toole Design, do you guys have a softball team that needs a ringer?
I also just barely managed to snap this lady riding by on Mass Ave-
What a cheerful Black and White top to go with a classic B&W Raleigh
