    No Car... No Problem!


    I learned several things today while riding my bike instead of driving my car...


    1) First, Atlanta is not a bike-friendly city.  I rode on the sidewalk because I value my life and don't like the idea of having a Buick mull me over on Peachtree Avenue. But after interviewing a few people I learned that it's against the law to bike on the sidewalk! Not only that, if a cop catches you doing it they can give you a $100 ticket!  What lunacy is this??!!


    2) People will laugh at you if you ride a bike in business-casual clothes and tape yourself while doing so. You would have thought I was Anderson Cooper with all the looks I was getting.


    3) If you're going to ride a bike throughout the day, DO NOT wear boxers!  I cannot stress this enough.  Hopefully it is self evident as to why but for the slower folk among us, let's just say it gives new meaning to the term "atomic wedgie."


    All and all I had a great day though.... spoke with some interesting people, got some exercise while working, and didn't spend any money on gas.  Maybe I will make this a weekly occurence.  But first.... I need to get some snugger underpants!
