I had a lot of time, so I rode slowly to the bike shop in town. One of my pedals was falling apart, so I needed to replace it. The shop sold me "new" "take offs" for $5/pair. What a deal!
I also rode slowly home at 12.5 mph(20kph) on the sidewalks, and maintained the speed limit on roads that I had to.
I think I'll ride slowly home on the sidewalks tomorrow. That way, I can get a pulse of how rush hour traffic is flowing BEFORE it reaches me at my normal speed.
