I ride my bike a lot in LA. And no mom (rip), I don’t wear a helmet. But I ride everywhere. Like 90% of the time. I take trains with it and once I put it on a bus.
One fine day I was streamlining through Beverly Hills adjacent with no hands and two bags of food on the handlebars. A $70,000 Audi rolls down her window and I get the most sincere “Thank you” as she pulls out of her driveway and away.
