avoid a right hook
Bike lane straight but car lane right
who’ll be first to go?
… they don’t go together. Not even a conflict except the midwestern kind (which means people sitting waiting for the other person to proceed 😉 ), but having a straight lane to the right of right turners is just bad. A car passed me right before a three-way stop on campus, where he was turning right and he clearly expected me to keep going . It would have been rather easy for me to have kept going, and not been seen by the oncoming car who was turning left.
18 degrees when I left for home; temps supposed to rise tonight and fall tomorrow. It’s up to 20 already 🙂 ‘Tis a mixd up climate!This a.m.’s 7 out at the airport was record cold. I did an extra lap before going home tonight, too, to get warm and appreciate the irony of riding more in cold temps to get warm.
Tomorrow’s plan – to take the Gazelle to the bike coop and hope for assistance figuring out its back end (and perhaps lifting it onto a bike stand). Then trading it for the Xtra to decorate for the Parade ofLights.
