Working nights this week, so I found it unlikely to find this very friendly lady walking her beat up mountain bike out of the downtown Winnipeg office building at 10pm. As I held the door open for her, she tells me that she rode her bike all winter long after getting tired of waiting for the bus, standing in the cold, only to be sweating like a pig moments after getting on board. She refused to pay for parking in the downtown area so she started taking her bike to work everyday. I sincerely congratulated her on her accomplishment, but never told her that was my bike locked up across the street.

I had to agree with her on all counts. As you know, I hate bus’s, and the only thig worse than riding behind one is riding in one.  As far as parking is concerned…. Don’t even get me started. See you around M.J.
