One of my favorite things about riding around here is that there is never hectic traffic or any traffic really. Some might think that makes for boring rides, but for me it means that I get to zone out and really focus on my workout instead of worrying about traffic, stop lights, route finding, stop signs, finding an appropriate restroom in the city, etc.
Another thing I like is that I always seem to notice something I haven’t seen before even on my favorite training loops. While it’s not uncommon for skis to be part of landscapes/ junk shows in this area, typically there’s no boot attached to the ski. So I’m not sure if that ski + boot was a public service reminder to scrape the storage wax off of skis as the season quickly approaches or if it was an offering to the ski gods in hopes of epic snowfall. Either way, that was the scene yesterday during my ride.
