I'm now officially Doing My Part to Save the World by riding a bike to work. I had an SUV honk at me yesterday, which I suppose constitutes some sort of rite of passage. I greatly prefer the 360 degree view from a bike -- you actually feel like you're present on the street you're on, rather than looking at it from a moving carriage.

The ironic thing is I started biking to work the same week I finally got my parking permit. I've been on the waiting list for a permit for six months, but now with my bike I literally get to park a couple of yards from the entrance in a protected parking garage. I am quite pleased with the arrangement and I'm considering leasing my permit (under the table of course) to the unfortunate souls who are still on the waiting list.
