Fun with Traffic Lights!

Monday, May 09, 2011

While rolling on into work today I began to notice something different about today's ride: I wasn't hitting any red lights!

Okay, so let's have a little fun and see how my luck (and a little psyching, timing skill) continues.

Well I counted 13 traffic lights on my way to work (hmm...maybe I want a RECOUNT and see if I get a different total...lol) and took care as I approached each light and VOILA! Didn't snag a single red light! (you don't want to know how many tissues I filled when I finally stopped...lol!)

The sun is out, heading for upper 60's, no traffic lights...hey, it's just GOTTA be one humdinger of a day ahead, right? Maybe I'd better head to Vegas or Atlantic City?

I'll let you know later if I get struck by lightning for tempting the fates...! :-)

And here's your cycling news of the day, continuing our "May Is National Cycling Month" theme:

"As Gas Prices Soar Cycling Gains Speed"

bike-sales-boom_n.htm


"As gas prices surge beyond $4 a gallon, more Americans are cycling as a way to stay fit, save money, or both."

One of my favorite fellows and causes, Tim Blumenthal, president of www.Peopleforbikes.org is featured in the article.

If you haven't yet done so...it's WAY past time to dust off that bike and zip off for some FUN!

ps...after today's commute of 20 miles this year's cycling totals will be up to 239 miles.
