words of warning

This situation isn’t exactly new, but for anyone who rides 6th between San Vicente and Fairfax, a couple of sinkholes have developed in the right lane. One of them has been pretty well marked for the better part of two weeks. The other one, which to my mind is the more severe of the two, is marked by an orange cone, but isn’t nearly as visible. You’ll come across them if you’re riding east on Sixth between Crescent Heights and Fairfax. For what it’s worth, I’ve gone and updated the map as well.

And one more thought about biking and ethics (or another ethic, another suggestion for a universal): Ride in traffic (Demand it?) like you expect to be seen; plan like you won’t. You might not win the most points with asinine drivers, but I feel like I’ve been safest as a rider on the street in traffic when I demand to be seen by cars.
