Mirror Images

After the winter snow melted and we were able to pedal to work again, Bob installed a rear view mirror on my handlebars. Yes, I suppose I could have done it myself but Bob likes being able to do things for me and I just am not interested in bike maintenance. Anyway, I love the rear view mirror. Not only do I feel more confident about what is going on behind me but I also like having a view of what I am leaving behind as I wait for the green light.

Occasionally, I am surprised to find a fellow bike commuter directly behind me.

This young lady was riding a lovely Electra. I wasn't quite enough with the shutter to capture the bike before she scooted past me at the crosswalk.

And a lovely view going forward.
