I was out of town for a couple of days, so I was anxious to get back on the bike today. I wasn’t able to ride to work, but I did put in a few miles before hand on the River Road/Campus Route.
As I was coming home on Newman Road, I noticed that the County crews had mowed recently. They use equipment that includes a mowing deck parallel to the ground to get the grass, and a vertical deck to ‘trim’ the bushes and limbs that are potruding into the right-of-way. Where the honeysuckle bushes are thick, the road looks like a ‘Green Canyon’ with high, green sidewalls. (I’ll get a picture later and post it here.)
