A couple of months ago I reached my 2 year car-free anniversary.
One of my "regular" bus drivers calls me the bike lady.
After a very unpleasant experience on the metro rail, I don't take the train to work anymore. I've been trying to get streetlamps fixed on my old walking route from the red line to my apartment. Amazingly this has turned into an effort spanning nearly an entire year with multiple forms filled out and council member contact. This city has some growing up to do.
