Why do I ride? In part, because of unique and wonderful opportunities like these! This is the ferry from Seattle arriving at Bainbridge Island, Washington, exclusively taken over by participants coming for the 33 mile “Chilly Hilly” bike ride around the island. Not only does this photograph exemplify that certain camaraderie and brotherhood among bicyclists, but also proves that we can experience mass transit … “en masse”. No cars here! What a wonderful way to get exercise, experience something truly unique, and leave a very limited carbon footprint in doing so.
