On my ride, walk, hop, jump, leap in this morning, I got to thinking… where are my race numbers? Parts of the ride felt more like a cyclocross event than anything else. Perhaps this could be a new race category, the "with panniers, lights, batteries, etc." classification. It was the first morning where I've really been slowed down by the work on the bike trail. They were taking down trees in the area where the replacement sewer pipe will be layed in the ground and they were just laying them down across the entire width of the bike path. Naturally, it was a section where there is water on both sides, so no good exit route. They've been really good about cleaning up at night, so I suspect all of this will be gone for my trip home.
