Conditions.

Came up behind a cyclist this evening up in the canyon. Dark. At least he had blinking head/taillights.

Blind right hand corner around a rock wall. Huge rainwater puddle up against the right face extending out into the lane.

Kudos for the lights. I saw him.

I was nice and waited until he had negotiated the corner and puddle before passing. After who knows how many cars had gone through this section, the pavement beyond was dripping wet.

Trying to be nice, giving him room, but still ending up throwing a wave of dirty sludge all over him.

A little bit of kindness. It was still his time.

Hey, he can wash off dirty sludge if he doesn't get run over. All good. If it were me on the bike, I wouldn't have been too upset. Ride when the road is dirty, expect to get dirty.

They've had those in Europe for at least 100 years. hat



Have fond memories of loading up the car on the train, having a nice dinner, going to comfy bed and waking up the next day in another country, all jerked out, with your own car waiting when you step off the train.


PS Santa Cruz just released a carbon Chameleon!

I saw the carbon Chameleon, but that's above my pay grade. And the color... Whoa Nelly.

That is epitome of a butch color. I love the grey Bronson and sand colored Nomad but I just don't have that sort of terrain close by. The new Bronson would be a perfect Hood River bike. So would the Yeti Sb 130 or 150. But the trails close to me are not nearly gnarly enough.

In that case I'd get a gravel bike or "road plus" as they now call it.

I bet there some epic riding for that kinda bike around Hood.
