I was late to work this morning. *Two* fender benders on Highway 17 meant my bus was 20 minutes late getting to the Train Station, so I missed my train. I caught the 8:22 northbound, but then the train ahead of us (the one I was supposed to be on) hit a car that somebody left on the tracks. Nobody was in the car, but service up and down the line was halted for over an hour while Caltrain cleaned up the mess, and I'm sure things are still delayed.
I and several other cyclists abandoned the train in Mountain View, from where I rode the 10 miles to work. That's not really a big deal, but it would have been a lot faster if I brought a road bike instead of my mountain bike.
