Wednesday at my job we had a bit of a mixer after work, with food, drinks, door prizes, and a photographer. Being that it was about 10 minutes away, I hopped on my trusty steed and headed to a work function. It's worth noting that while the weather is warming rapidly, it's still cool at night and worth bringing a jacket.
When I rolled up, they actually had bike racks available! I may have been the only one using it, but it got used, darn it. One thing that often baffles my coworkers is that I ride a bike quite frequently, but almost never "look like it". I'm not sweaty, or covered in reflective clothing (bike lights is another story), and while my hair is always kind of a hot mess, I'd be lying if I blamed that on my cycling.
Here I am at my work function, after a couple beers and my own typical luck while trying to win a door prize (that is to say, I went home empty handed). To modify the slogan of my former employers, there's almost never a bad time to ride.
