Used to be in our town, there were only a few people walking -
- the guy that carries a football helmet and wears the heavy down jacket in the middle of the summer
- the black dude with the beard and weird walk that yells at himself constantly
- a family of special people who ride the bus and seem to get off at every stop
One time, I was riding my beach cruiser for fun and was stopped by some people who I hadn't seen in a long time. Turns out they thought I had gotten a DUI or something... they couldn't figure out why I would be riding a bike otherwise. Riding bikes was one of the best things about living in a college town. Gainesville had a such a good vibe for bike riders... it always felt natural to ride a bike there...
