From the Bike Lane

On a quiet Sunday morning, the empty bike stand stands as a reminder of the lively transition that occurred just hours before.

It looks like someone was in a real hurry to get to the donut shop! 39 km/hour? That's faster than a cheetah chasing its prey! Meanwhile, on the other side of the road, I am pedaling away on my trusty bike at a blazing 15 km/hour.

I catch a glimpse of the train cars rolling by. Each one carrying passengers and cargo alike to new destinations and opportunities.

I captured this image from atop my trusty bicycle. Though the ride itself was not particularly daring. These city bikes move at a leisurely pace, affording riders the luxury of attending to their daily affairs while in transit - the act of capturing this moment felt imbued with a sense of possibility and wonder.

Why should bikes always be the ones to carry us when we might just as easily return the favor?
