Yeah, dragging a knee in office clothes isn't the best idea when you've got a morning meeting with clients, but sometimes a little extra grime and a bit of fraying that wasn't there yesterday is exactly what a rider needs to break free of existential gravity, as Gary calls it.
At the very least, it's worth a shot. There's nothing like a little dose of freedom to help you stay sane on your way in to the office.
A couple of hard turns with excessive lean certainly helped me stay awake a while longer than I would have had I ridden at a more leisurely pace this morning. Accelerating hard up the on ramp into traffic even loosened up my concrete scowl enough to let a small smile break through.
And that is why riding to work is awesome.
