I have to be honest with myself though - maybe it's time.
I found myself riding yesterday on a MUP, pitch dark, but lots of totally hard-to-see homeless people use it. At some point, I realized I was totally spacing out and not paying the least attention to my riding. Mind wandering. Now, I have pretty severe type 1 bipoolar disorder and I suppose it could be related to that, but really, I was just spacing out for no apparent reason. Scared me. I am usually so dialed in.
