I shot this roll last week to do a ride report and discovered the roll from the Grand Prix that had gone missing. I'll just call it interpretive art!
Reeling in the break??Kristin

Suposed to be a picture of storm grates near my houseKristin

But I think it is much more! Originally (??) I shot this because there are some damn scary storm drains along my route.
Is that Hincapie in the drain? nmQubeley

Do the slats run PARALLEL to the line of traffic? If so, that is insane- around here, they are all diagonal or perpendicular... you ain't kidding!
Yep, slats run in the direction of my skinny little tires.Kristin

You can't see it in the shot, but there is ONE support bar that runs through the middle--to save you from getting sucked down and ruining your hub. But still, it cause a flat at the least and possibly a trashed rim.

That said, this is on an overpass that has a cement enclosed sidewalk with no drains. (Eola Road crossing I88, for the initiated.) If I complained to the city, they'd likely tell me that riders should be on the sidewalk. As a matter of fact, I've taken to using that walkway when crossing this bridge. Traffic on Eola is a little scary.
Nice ! Very original, I would love to see a painted version nmrwbadley
