Since I was more than a little under the massive cloud of tree pollution last week, I tried to stay indoors with air conditioning as much as possible. But since my kitchen window looks down over 16th Street and I had to feed myself, I saw something I hadn’t seen before, at around 5:30 pm, which I consider still rush hour:
There were plenty of pedestrians on sidewalks on both sides of 16th, between Q and R, coming home from work, when all of a sudden, I saw two guys, both in gym not work gear, riding side by side on the sidewalk talking to each other as if the sidewalk were a bike trail. I saw at least a couple of pedestrians who saw them yield quickly. But they were also going against the direction of street traffic and I have no idea what happened once they got south of Q, where there is a bus stop every couple of blocks.
Clearly these two didn’t care about you. But I’d like you to come back and read my blog again. So I say again STAY ALERT AND STAY SAFE.
