Ride To Work Day Report: Mr. Smith Goes To Coffee

I had the same problem on Ride To Work Day as Dain; I work at home, and the bike won't fit in the hall or through the door to my office in the back bedroom. So instead of riding to work, I rode to someone else's work. Monica owns Gourmet Coastal Coffees in Coos Bay, Oregon; she runs it, too. She allows scruffy people like me and my riding buddies to take over the big table in the corner, steal all the newspapers, do all the crosswords, and help ourselves to free refills. "Help yourself," she says. "Just pretend you're family. You're in here so often you might as well be."—Jerry Smith
