Rode up Fletcher Parkway. I got through the first construction zone ok, but a herd of cars and trucks caught me at the light, so I was quite intimidated going through the second construction zone. Nobody honked or came close or nuthin', but never the less. And a lot of people have to deal with that on their whole route, not just a hundred feet or so. What do I have to complain about? Nuthin'!!
I don't see many adult-kid pairs of riders, so when I saw these guys making this left turn, I thought I would take a snapshot of them.
After this turn there is a bit a tricky merge, especially when peoples are heading to'n'from work. I fear for them...
You can look at this incredibly notated pic to see what I
Of course you can't read that, click it, go to all sizes, look at the BIG one!
While I was snapping the shot, another bicyclist zoomed past me. I caught him a couple of lights later.
This is what transpired:
- The light is red, we are waiting. Even though I'm turning right, I am behind him, so I wait.
- The light turns green, he turns right, I turn right.
- He does a U-turn, but stops partway back to the intersection.
- I see this in my mirror, so I stop to see what he is doing.
- He waits for the green, then proceeds on his way, turning right, back onto his original course.
(The pink route is an alternate, down the bike path. I could not see exactly which way he went. Doesn't matter!)
Here's the fellow starting to take off on the green. I like all the signs; the telephoto lens really flattens the perspective.
Yah, I KNOW you wanted to see a detail of that. Is that a Hendrix shirt? Headphones? What is he listening too, I wonder.
So why did he go to all that trouble, just to keep going in the same direction? You humans do the strangest things, sometimes!
That was the turn-around point, so I headed back west again.
Got the odometer up to 50.26 miles for the week, so I am on schedule.
I was gonna warsh Jamis, but instead just earled the chain.
