A View From my Handlebars

Buffalo, the city in which I was born and currently reside, is not a large city (we rank 70 out of 275 in the size of American cities, according to this page), but it’s a lovely city and a great place to live and work. But we still have traffic jams and rush hour, not like those you may find in mega-cities, but nonetheless, they still occur. This is an image I took while on Allen Street this evening on my way to the health club. It’s a narrow street and sometimes busy but not usually this busy, but it was just after 5pm. What a beautiful day it was/is…look at that sky. And after spending the day facing a hot stove and  as I stood straddling my bike waiting for the traffic light to change I felt so lucky–blessed actually–to be on a bike and not trapped in a car on such a beautiful evening. I’m just saying…

Urban Simplicity.
