WHEELING

Friends often say to me something like, “I can’t believe you’re afraid of driving to New York, but you bicycle everywhere.”  I don’t worry as much as you’d think a worrywart might about getting hit by a car while biking (uh-oh will this jinx me?).  It helps that I wear my new danger-zone-yellow helmet, ride on sidewalks, brake at driveways, brake on downhills and make eye contact before crossing in front of cars.  Except sometimes, when I’m rushing, I scare myself to death by speedily pedaling across the street with only one second left on the traffic light timer and then the light turns red before I get to the other side and I swear I’ll never do it again and then I do it again.
