bike related shots
January 15, 2007 - Sitting outside the Taida library with my bike, probably before class.
About to ride through one of two tunnels on Hsinhai Road after class. Oh, I was looking for a new apartment because of allergies in my old apartment, and I was lucky to get a sunny day to ride through my new potential neighborhoods. One of the apartments would have taken me through this tunnel everyday to go to school, and quite honestly, I do think increased frequency with which one travels through these tunnels on bikes, increases the likelihood of getting hit, more so than riding just on ordinary streets, which is pretty dangerous in itself. Riding through the tunnels, you're a sitting duck, with no leeway to do anything to prevent getting hit. You ride, you pray.
The apartment I chose, although not as nice and with paper thin walls, allows me to get to school using mostly the safe, flat, and getting boring riverside bikeways.
