Thanks to The Oregon Zoo's CRAPtastic signage I ended up exiting onto the 26 on my bike after tonight's fantastic Lucinda Williams show. Pretty much shitting my pants I decided there was no turning back and, hey, I've driven it a million times before by car and I'll be home faster than those foolish crowds taking mass transit right?

Well no. I was biking on a freeway. Holy crap. So no sarcasm thank you to the white SUV who yelled out their window what seemed to be encouragement and paced me the entire time until their exit off Hoyt Arboretum, at which point they slowed to let me pass. Awesome!

And no thank you Metro for your suckass signage that put my neck on the line. At least now I know my bike can do 50.
