PG Transit Drivers are the best!
It was a cold brisk day today, but I decided to walk to work anyways. There was very strong Northern winds that would have made bicycling challenging (-35c WITH Windchill). While I was walking to work, a transit bus pulled over and the driver motioned me to board it. I took the driver up on his offer and hopped aboard. As I was sitting down, I mentioned that I had a bus ticket on me that I use when I feel like taking it home, usually after work. He said there was no need to pull it out. Wow! This is not the only time that I've been offered a ride in time of need.
What is the coldest temperature that you've bike in? Or you have walked in?
I might take bus tomorrow, as it's supposed go down to -42 or so WITH Windchill, a bit cold to be on bike, at least for me.
I love living in PG, it's a decent sized city with not bad transit, but the people are so friendly like they are living in a small town. Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?
I am still wondering where Spring is.
