This morning I had a friend along with me, for 3/4 of my ride, to work. My girlfriend accompanied me, on her bike, as I pedaled westward. - it was great. Riding to work is, undeniably, my favorite part of the day. It's new, fresh, crisp and dark; often times amazingly beautiful; even in the worst parts of the west side.
Baltimore pisses me off a lot of the time. But for the most part; I love living here. I love the way my life is right now and I love my morning rides through darkness into a new day. Sharing it with my best friend today made it better than ever.
