The beginning of my very first blog! Well, unless you count LiveJournal in the early 00s. But that was mostly for passive-aggressive sad-sap emo behavior I, and every other 20-something, was sporting at the time.
For the last 2 years I have been an avid pedestrian and Metro’er. I have funny, sometimes hilarious, rarely scary, always interesting experiences while commuting around Seattle.
To celebrate the 2-year anniversary of my not owning a vehicle, I decided to purchase a bike. The saga of my bike-search is another post for another time, but I am now the proud owner of a 2008 Schwinn World Sport hybrid. I have a lot of work to put in to it (new saddle, grips, and pedals are en route), but it’s a great bike for me right now.
My dream bike is a Bianchi Milano Citta. Again, another post for another time. (but – if you know someone who is selling theirs, I need a 19.5”.)
So anyhow, now I get around this beautiful city of Seattle by foot, by Metro, and by Sally my Schwinn. I’ll be chronicling my daily commute, amongst other things.
