Back in the salad days of the internet, when Facebook was still a fevered dream in Mark Zuckerberg’s mind and twitter was the sound a bird made, I had a blog called le petit hiboux. It means little owl in (deliberately mangled) French and I loved my cozy corner of the web, but after nine years and one marriage and one graduate degree and a whole lot more happiness than I could have thought possible when I started pH in college, I quit blogging.
I’m back, baby! Well, anyway, sort of. I’ve started commuting by bicycle around New York, from Sunset Park in Brooklyn to the Financial District in Manhattan, and it’s inspired me to pick up the blogging pen again and document the process of becoming one of those obnoxious cycling evangelists crowding your bike lanes.
Enjoy the ride!
