I am passing maybe 50 cars gridlocked in traffic. At some places, I pedal and motor slowly on the sidewalk, other places I use the bike lane. On the steep gridlocked hill, I ride up the path at the roadside like a dirtbike. When they play catch up by speeding in a 25mph zone, I cruise in the bike lane @ 15mph and relax for 2 blocks. When the cagers charge ahead to the next two red lights, I'm motoring on the sidewalk @ walking or jogging speed until I reach home.
I am SO relaxed by the time I park my bike.
