Stop!

We all know that cyclists aren’t meant when they put up “Do Not Enter” signs. We can always push the bike around a bit of construction. But I guess sometimes they do mean us and in the picture in the header they wanted to be sure we got the message! We took the detour.

The day after as we approached an underpass, we came to a do-not-enter-due-to-flooding sign. We had a look and decided we can pedal through that.

Please note radiation.
Coming out the other side – success, but wet feet!

On the same ride, I came across some nice examples of radiation.

I’m not sure what these farm machines are called. Are they hay tedders?

Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes! I think we have the infection under control and I’ve been back on my bike for a couple of days now.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    You are such an impertinent law breaker! I might need to perform a little image editing in order to add you to the gallery of Wild Ones.

    Hay Tedders — had to look that one up! Cool photos of them.

    Hay is cut and raked into windrows here, not sure Ive ever seen it turned over to dry more quickly, Ill have to ask my farm expert neighbor.

    The radiating waves is a great photo!

    You are absolutely right; “Do Not Enter,” “Road Closed,” and other signs of that ilk do NOT apply to bicycle riders. In fact, I regularly ride on two short paths through apartment complexes that specifically say “NO BICYCLES OR SKATEBOARDS.” Those paths are great short-cuts to get me to the grocery store. My justification is that those signs apply only to reckless hoodlums who ride bikes, not courteous bike riders like me.

    By the way, I was surprised to see that those green and yellow hay tedders weren’t John Deere implements. You’d think John Deere would have a trademark on those colors.

    So glad to see you back on the saddle! Good radiating finds too ;ā€™-). That puddle sure did cooperate. And I have now learned another new thing here ā€” tenders!
