A departure from what I normally put on this blog, but I wanted to say that I think science is great!
I just bought a flatbed bike trailer at Urbane. On the ride home, a gentleman driving a pickup trucked stopped me at a light to express his interest in buying one. I gave him the appropriate details. I have several thoughts about this:
- Sweet damn! A motorist is interested in biking, utilitarian cycling no less.
- I've always thought that a perfect world would have nobody commuting in cars, but that delivery trucks and contracters would still be using trucks as they do now. After todays incident, it dawns on me that some of them could use the old bike trailer instead.
- I hope I don't get stopped on every ten minute bike ride to answer questions about the trailer.
