Bike to work 2009

Bike to work banner from the websiteEveryday I’m too asleep to even appreciate the community that has build up in the bike car of the Caltrain. I see the same mixed heritage hip-hop dude with his cool addidas shoes, the same Palo Alto bound woman, the same Mountain View boundĀ  MarketingĀ  guy, and the same Silicon Valley nerd twich a day and never acknowledge them. However, today was different.

Today we all choose not to stop to get our free bag, coffee cake and coupons celebrating Bike to Work Day 2009 because we wanted to get on that Southbound Caltrain only to find out on the 22nd st stop that the train will be delayed for 50 minutes at Hillsdale.

This is the 3rd time in the past two weeks that we have been stuck on the train because there was another Caltrain “incident.” So we bitched Caltrain out, we heartlessly hated on this “incident,” and in our commiserating process we all remarked at how comforting it was to see the same faces twice a day on this train–to have a community.

I know its corny but I’m feeling fuzzy and warm for all my Caltrain biker friends!
