Winter Gridlock 2014 – a pictoral timeline » Wed, 1/29 @ 8:03AM – first flipped car

Wed, 1/29 @ 8:03AM - first flipped car. I only have to ride 1/2 mile from my house to stumble (almost literally) upon the first flipped car. Rocky Ridge Rd was so icy that I walk stretches of it. I am trying to ride down the middle of the road where there is a little bit of snow (and traction), but graviity pulls me across to the side of the road onto the shoulder where I am completely shocked to be staring at this car in front of me. This moment is recorded 7 minutes and 50 seconds into this video: http://youtu.be/31u73UqPQ4A. I park my bike alongside the sign and run down to the car just to make sure nobody is still in the car (i.e., in case it had just happened while I was biking down the other side of the hill). Nobody is inside, but the contents of the car are strewn everywhere.

Hard to see through all the computer equipment, but I've been super happy with my #fizik components and #martindale wheelset - saddle, stem, bars, and tape. Confident that my equipment will take me through an #everesting today plus my normal commutes before and after. My rear tire is getting worn, but probably has a few hundred miles left on it. I'm taking ab extra just in case! Josiah's comment "yeah, we made it to the jungle" (to block the rain) on the way to church. Men's 100 mile podium, Left to right - Justin Lowe, Gordon Wadsworth, Kyle Taylor, Barnabas, and Jeff Clayton.
