Now you see me

The Pontiac (a.k.a. Bree) hasn't been repaired yet — when do I have time? — so I've been riding my bicycle to work quite a bit, despite the snow and ice. The surprising thing? I'm really enjoying it. (Anyone who remembered me and my 400+ mile weeks in high school might wonder why this would be surprising; short story is, I got my driver's license.)

One thing that definitely needed improvement, though, was twilight visibility. I spent a while the other night, cutting red and white reflective tape and applying it on the inside of my back rim.

Must be pretty effective; cars are now driving off the road on the other side to give me plenty of room when they're passing me. Maybe I'll sit down sometime and do the front wheel, too.
