I commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan by bike on most workdays. One day, to calm myself from too many car-doors in my face, too many pedestrians stepping blithely and without looking into the bikelane, I started composing haikus in my head. Thus was born the Bike Commute Haiku Project. From that day, June 10, 2014, I pledged to compose and post one haiku a day about my commute for one year. 

Addendum July 31, 2014: After a while, it became clear to me that I do not, actually, bike every single day. And so here is my modified pledge. I will post a haiku every day that I do until June 10, 2015.

Not a great idea.
