The ride home yesterday, on bike and bus and bike, was actually uneventful. I left a little later than I planned to from work. I crossed Fifth at Morewood, and while I did a pretty packed 500 rolled by (this was around 5:45). I rode to Centre and Graham, and got on a 71A bus with three or four people on it. It stayed that way, with one person getting on and three or so exiting before Negley and Hampton. Possibly the most exciting moment was crossing Negley. The rest of the ride through Morningside, gradually up the foothill of Stanton Heights and on to the city steps of Martha, was just as hard as I remember it.
I’ll probably try this again next week sometime, but I don’t think I will be looking forward to it. Still, maybe I will be able to feel somewhat virtuous.
