I treasure each morning that I can ride my bike to work, especially this late in August when the edges of daylight creep ever later. It was cool yet comfortable this morning. The forecast of a warm afternoon had me don a sleeveless jersey, covered with my bright pink (bolero) arm warmer.
I stopped for a light, and looked into the car waiting next to me to see a funny little dog popping around the front seat. His owner rolled down the window to tell me how visible I was in my bright colors and to introduce his doggy companion to the cyclist standing next to the car.
What a cute dog - I could have happily reached out to hug him!
