Road Rash Alert

Last week Jojo and I took the 80 degree weather as a sign to ride to Lake Monroe and test the waters, and that’s what we did (it was mighty cold, but refreshing). We decided to ride down the bike route south to Rhorer Road, and then down Harrell to Stipp. We had not decided whether to go down Stipp Rd. (our favorite hill) or ride down Handy past the water treatment plant to the boat ramp.

As we approached the intersection of Handy Rd. I turned my head to ask Jojo which way to go, and bam, I was on the road in a pile of grit. I really did not see the 3 inch pile at the edge of the rode. After wiping the blood off, I took a picture from each direction, and as you can see, the pile is quite visible coming from Stipp Rd. but not going into it. Caveat veho!
