Hard to believe, but since starting this blog in August of 2006, I have written 1000 posts, making this #1001. For those who have been there from the start, thanks for your loyalty. For new arrivals, I hope you will visit often. For those who have arrived somewhere in between, or who have come and gone, or left and come back, thanks for gracing me with your time and attention.
Now, to the point of this post. Please meet Garry Dunster, night nurse in our Emergency Department, arriving yesterday to BIDMC in record time despite the snow and a few minor mishaps. Gary rides to work every day. (He reports: "My commute is 32 miles one way from Upton, if I'm on one night I'll ride both ways. If I'm on a couple of nights together, I'll make my big cycle in, then sleep at my mother-in-law's in Belmont before cycling home again on the last morning. I hope I can be an inspiration to a few others to give up the car and look for a greener alternative for the commute to work. Although the summer is perhaps the time to start!!!)
Regular readers know that I like to bike ride, too, but I have a firm belief in the importance of friction (between the wheels and the road), something sorely lacking in this weather. Maybe Gary has those special snow tires with embedded studs . . . .
