My first bike lane blocker.
I've also had my first yell by. You know, where someone leans out the window of a passing vehicle and yells, "Get the fk off the road!" Sometimes a cyclist can hold up a car for 10 seconds. That's an eternity when your driving.
My first near-bike collision. Some guy riding around the water fountain at Riverfront Park turned right at me while he was looking behind. At what? Who knows.
But these things are to be expected since it's not a perfect world. The weather has been awesome. Cool and crisp in the mornings and toasty on the way home. But I'm ready for the rain in the forecast. I'm also seeing other commuters I met last year as well as meeting new ones. Cool!
