5 September 2011

Yes, I rode.

Yesterday as Heather and I were driving on I-44 I watched a rider on a sportbike weave in and out of traffic. I thought his following distances were too tight. Also, the rider didn't seem to be mindful of the drivers' blind spots. I agree we have to ride as if we are invisible, but I feel we must work at putting ourselves in position to be seen. With this in mind, I particularly worked at my positioning in relation to other drivers on my commute today.

It was almost chilly on the ride in. This is quite a change from the last few days. The weather looks good for the rest of the week.

I noticed this woman as I was walking to the bike parking area. I asked her if I could take a picture of her "wheels".  It seems she has a neck condition that will not allow her to use crutches, so she gets this cool little contraption instead. Looks like more fun than crutches, but not having a need for either sounds the most fun.

The almanac:
53F (11.6C) and Clear for the ride in.
74F (23.3C) with a few clouds for the ride home.
