I couldn't believe it. The first day after summer ends they got around to cleaning the streets. It's nice riding now, but would have been better last May. Perhaps it was for school kids, I don't know.
For the next hour of my ride, all I could think about is in about a month the leaves will start to fall, and in this area people rake them into long piles along the side of the road for vaccuum trucks to pick up. Those piles will be in the part of the road I'm using now. These leaf piles will be about 1 to 2 feet high and line the curb area of the road. Any thoughts on how to deal with this future problem? I mean, apart from not riding through the leaves.
