It’s not October yet, two days to go, so here is a quick post to acknowledge our September challenges.
The train obviously rolls. But then I got to thinking about it and wondered how come the train doesn’t just glide on the smooth tracks. Checked with Google and the friction created by the weight of the train enables the wheels to turn. But my question wasn’t so dumb because sometimes there isn’t enough friction, due to wetness for example, which is not good. There are solutions, one being spraying sand from a box in front of the wheels.
Now this is not original at all but they say copying is the highest form of flattery. So I imitated Rich’s idea with this t-shirt.
It’s not exactly a pet peeve but I found some examples at the local train station of what I think is such a sorry way to treat bicycles.
I haven’t been back on my bicycle yet, so these shots are from my walks around town. I find this relatively boring, since I don’t get far on foot and am always walking the same streets. But it’s better than staying indoors all day. I hope to be back on my bike soon, and that it stops raining!
