Why ride? Besides the exercise and challenge, in a dense space, cycling allows for interesting social interaction. As a pedestrian, I often don’t think of cars and trucks as having drivers; on the street, I know those vehicles have people in them—and hope they’re paying attention. To a surprising extent, they are. Cabdrivers have apologized for parking in the bike lane; car and truck drivers have waved me on to go ahead of them.
