Clear!

I hope I won't encounter any new kind of rudeness or recklessness along the trail, but I was pleased to benefit from a novel courtesy this morning. A bicyclist passed me as I approached Westview Street. The trail crosses Westview at a tree-lined curve with bad sight lines. The cyclist crossed the road just ahead of me and called out "Clear!" when he had the best view to let me know I needn't stop. I appreciate the traffic report.

Today: 13 miles. This year: 840 miles.

I guess skaters & bikers have a pretty strong common interest in not being mowed by cars.

If you have a minute, I was wondering if you could take a look at my bikeway idea, and maybe post some feedback.

I've done that as well for other riders. Seems only polite.
