Comments from a friend-

I ride my bike to the train stop every morning. It's only about a mile and a half and I've got a great bike locker waiting for me there. It's a very easy start to the morning. Today was magical. I rolled out of the driveway and didn't stop pedaling until I got to my locker. Every intersection was open, every light turned green as I approached, and every left turn across traffic was clear. It didn't dawn on me until after I arrived and checked the time. It's a course record I doubt I will ever break. (Chris DiStefano- former Shimano PR guru)

How's that for a good start to the day?

A great ride made only better, I'm sure, by white bar tape.

Those are the magical days that make riding your bike to work fun. Last time I had that it slashed my commute time by 12 minutes. My riding experience that day was increased way beyond those lost 12 minutes outside in the fresh air.

I thought the story was going to end with. As I put my bike into the locker, I noticed I forgot my back pack. That's typically what happens to me when everything else is going so smoothly.
