Morning Commute

The sun came out today, and out of nowhere 10,000 bikes showed up on the streets of Munich. Of course, that is a made up number as I don’t know the real number of bikes that re-appeared today, but you had to be weary walking anywhere near the bike lanes, as clumps of 10 or more bikers would speed by. I honestly don’t know what the regulations are around biking in Bavaria, but it seems that all bikers are held above everyone else – including pedestrians, This particular shot was taken on Ludwigstrasse, near Munchen Freiheit. The thing that always amazed me about this street is that over the course of 10 minutes, you can go from the second ring road all the way into the center. Now that’s what I call a morning commute.
