Blink. Blink. Blink.

Yes, I rode to work today!

And . . .

By the afternoon people were embracing the much changed temperatures.

Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer. Maybe Martha was correct in her comment to yesterday's post. Maybe we have turned the corner.

There is one annoying thing I notice happens when I've been off the bike for a few days. I keep forgetting to switch off the turn signal. I really hate it when I come to a stop sign, look down, and see my blinker has been going since the last turn I made.

  • 25F/-4F and cloudy with some haze for the ride in.
  • 47F/8C with a few clouds for the home ride.


  1. When riding with friends, if one leaves their turn signal on we make a little pinching motion with our left hand finger and thumb, to let them know.

    I have tried doing that to other riders when I am in the car too. Some notice, some don't. Some just look at you weird, lol.

    I think we've all left our signals on at some point.

    Happy Friday!!

    1. I do the same in the car, but I've never had anyone notice, or if they did do anything about it. I just get the weird looks you mentioned.

  2. Tie it in with the horn so you get blink/beep, blink/beep, blink/beep.

    Just trying to help...

    1. Oh my.

      Thank you!

      Today was better. I didn't have the problem so much until I started wearing ear protection. Oh well.
