I was stopped at a light on Mass Ave last night, ignoring the cyclists stopped around me. Then a voice said something like “hey there, cyclists!” The driver of a bicycle rickshaw was chatting us up in a friendly and funny way, declaring this quartet a one time only event, this light having brought us together.
I often ignore other cyclists at the stop light, often because they are annoying me or I’m expecting them to annoy me by getting in front of me or doing something rude or stupid.
But this guy reminded me that I usually enjoy any bicycle chit chat that occurs at a light.
Thanks to you, stranger!
