Great Weekend For Riding

It was a great week for biking this weekend. I saw so many people out on their bikes it was amazing. Well, we better eat it up while it lasts because on Wednesday the temperature is suppose to drop again. I got a decent ride in today and got to take some pictures of bike racks. Too bad I couldn’t take pictures of all of them, there were more out then yesterday. I did see a pretty stupid rack yesterday. It was a roof rack that was way too wide for the SUV it was mounted on. This was some type of suburban or large high SUV with a 6ft, 8ft or possibly wider crossbar on it. I think it was either Thule or Yakima, I don’t know why people think that longer cross bars are better. Do they think they can fit more bikes on it just because its longer? In fact you can’t fit more bikes on a longer crossbar because you can’t reach the middle of the car. It looked so unsafe, if I was a police officer I would have pulled them over and told them to put the bikes in the middle of the rack.

On other notes, while I was riding we rode right by a traffic stop, they were checking for licenses. We just blew right past. I saw they seemed to have caught a lot of people. Perfect place right between two corners in a valley. As soon as you came around the corner there was no turning back. About six police officers and four cars unless some were under cover. I’ll have some more pictures posted within the next couple of days. Probably after the temperature drops and I don’t go riding.
