A Journey by Bike…Exhilaration

sign-share-the-roadToday, many roads have designated bike lanes, cyclists wear helmets, and there has been an effort to educate the public – cyclists and drivers alike – about bike safety. That was not the case when I was growing up. Do you remember biking in these times? I guess most young people have no sense of their own mortality, and I always felt safe on my bike.

During high school, I regularly cycled to  school. The school I attended, Servite, had no school bus. My parents had their hands full with me and my nine siblings, so my transportation options were limited to the city bus or my bike. I preferred the latter. Every day, I rode on an overpass spanning the 5 Freeway in Anaheim, without a care in the world. In fact, I would pedal as hard as I could, and delighted in the fact that I was often going faster than the cars in traffic beside me. It was exhilarating!
