Its dusty, but the cycling is good

One of my favorite signs of spring is the street sweeper with the big, goofy smiley face painting. Thank you to the city of Homer, along with the borough and state for doing such a great job during an unusually snowy winter. An extra thank you for getting the task of grit and sand removal off to a good start.

This springs thaw and melt revealed just how much sand had to be used to give us traction to get through the winter.

The deep accumulation of sand in the road gutters and on the shoulders, along with extra build up on street corners, makes cycling a dusty and unpredictable undertaking.

As Homer Cycling Club encourages all area cyclists to celebrate that May is Bike Month, its awesome that we dont have to deal with the worst of the dust and debris. Keep up the good work.

Its lovely out. Get out and ride, and share the road.
