Oh, the irony

Cycling keeps you healthy?  Not if you have to spend a lot of time behind this bus.  This is it accelerating after slowing down for the light.  The day before, I’d had the privilege of waiting behind it as it pulled away from a stop, when it emitted even more spectacular cyclist-choking plumes of smoke, before, to my relief, our paths diverged.  Unfortunately our paths rejoined a little later in the ride and it stopped in front of me again.

I made sure to have my camera in my pocket the next day, but the bus didn’t seem to have to stop anywhere, so I had to settle for this shot.  I sent the picture to the operator; they haven’t acknowledged it yet, but it’s only been one business day.
