Follow the crazy adventures of an Alabama cyclist taking on the Race Across America (again) in 2017.
Tues, 1/28 @ 10:21AM – traffic trouble
Tues, 1/28 @ 10:21AM – traffic trouble. At Alford Avenue, there is a LOT of traffic moving very slowly. As I approach the stop sign, there is a Hoover cop waiting to turn left, but he gives up and goes right. I am eventually able to make it out when this tanker blocks traffic to turn into the gas station. At this point, I still have amazing traction on my road bike even coming into the stop sign, making turns, etc… Not a single tire slip, so I don’t understand why there is so much traffic and why everybody is driving so slow. I was about to find out why.
