Bike-commute day 91—to work

Friday, 07 September 2011

I stopped at the Burkhardt crossing with a runner beside me. "Good morning, there, runner."

"Hey. Everything going OK?"

"Yeah, except for all the walnuts on the bikeway. D'you think you could kick off the path every single one that you come across?"

"I'll see what I can do."

I counted 14 walnut trees along the way. For the last two weeks, and probably for the next four, they offer 14 chances of hitting a nut and going down. Especially while they are camoflaged by fallen leaves.
