It's always exciting when one of your bike commute roads gets paved. The smoothness and new paint make you feel like you're going 45mph. One of the roads on my long route was paved recently. It's been so nice having it done.
Yesterday, there was a new development. They've cut out divots a good 12" from the edge of the road. These things are impossible to ride on. It would jar your teeth loose. But there isn't enough space on the right side of the divots to safely cruise the bike.
Solution? Ride further into the road.
But it's a narrow road to begin with. These little divots aren't going to make people very happy when they ride up behind the guy on the bike. Let's hope they exercise good patience.
