I continue to live in Interzone, Gentle Readers of This Blog. Rain and wind are constant companions for April but I continue to commute to work on my bike rain or shine. May I'm told will be the best here so I'm looking forward to the next few weeks. In the meantime, I have some more photos of my commute up Mt. Oread where my new office is located.
For this typical April Morning, the rain is winding down, and I'm off, mes amis, for work. Fenders are the best and make all the difference--but I probably don't have to tell you that. They keep me dry and clean, and same for the bike. From here at the Jr High School, I start the climb up to campus.
The climb up 14th that you see above is about a good half mile long, with the last quarter of the mile a pretty steep grade for sure. Not a lot of traffic as there's really no parking up around here so students are out of luck if they're running late for class.
Many of the students can be seen wearing shirts exclaiming, "Hill Yes!" which is reference to this steep area. I'm not quite sure but it's some kind of joke--a figure is seen walking in a cross-walk but the cross-walk is crazy steep. And they're not kidding! I'm glad there's rain and its a bit cool--this is a workout for anybody!
