Back to work after a long weekend.
My new folding bike arrived yesterday (which is sad, because UPS drivers had to work on a holiday that too many companies don't take seriously.) I unpacked it and put it together (which consisted of putting in the seat post and filling the tires) and tried it out. It felt great!
I made the plunge and ordered this bike after getting tired of not being able to find a spot to park a Citibike at one end of my commute or the other. Maybe the system is a victim of its own success? Maybe letting Lyft get involved has ruined it. Either way, life is too short.
