    I like that he can have a sense of humor even after the ticket and the aggravation of riding in NYC. I personally on the other hand, just felt pissed off for him everytime he crashed into something in the bike lane. My husband bikes to work, and I try not to think about the unsafe crap he has to deal with from motorists, construction, and god help me, other bikers. I need to go sit quietly and calm down now!
