Bike Path Obstacles

I rode to work today, 10 miles each way and it's a beautiful day.

On the bike path, I encountered a lady with a little bitty dog walking on the wrong side. A few runners, with ear buds. Light rail commuters who don't look before crossing. A coffee clotch-sized group of smokers who are apparently deaf to bells. A bunny. Big industrial mowers kicking up lots of my favorite allergen.

And best of all, a city worker with a huge weed whipper that looked more like a chain saw standing in the middle of the path with his back to me, just after a blind turn. Luckily he heard my scream over the din of his equipment and didn't impale me.

Now, for the ride home.
