Great commute except $%#&&*^ glass and grape vine
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.
well today was my first day on the MUP , ive been riding my alternate route (4 lane).
The first 2 /3rds of my 19 mile trip on the MUP was great its along the river lots of critters even a swan this morning I normaly dont see any in our part of NY , 2 big Woody wood peckers (pileated) , no traffic lights no diesel fumes the ride was great UNTILL,
UNTILL I got to the last section of my ride then every single underpass (there are 3) , all 3 were loaded with glass, not an occasional bottle that broke but a %&%##$@#$ Mine field even all through the Tunnels.
To top it off the some a_ _ Hole took a large grapvine and tied it across the MUP at the bottom of a hill
(I moved it)
No flats , I stopped and walked through each tunnel and at 2 crossings where they had glass all over on both sides of the road.
have a great day
