Today was one of those days when I want to buy Jerry Merkey a beer or three. With southbound traffic on Diamond backed up well past Orange/Sandia, I happily cruised down the bike lane past all that stopped traffic (slowing down from my usual cruising speed to leave time to react to the unexpected), made a right on Sandia, and weaved my way through his mapped route while everyone else was sitting stalled in traffic.

There is something refreshing about having a quiet, peaceful option rather than breathing auto exhaust in a long line of cars.

Here's to you having miles and miles without a flat tire or a headwind, Jerry.
