apparently no one on the road works crews of hobart ride bikes. this morning the Southern Outlet, one of the major hiways down here was closed due to ice and snow. the just reported on the radio that the outlet was no re-opened, because they had removed the snow, and any ice that they found had been covered - with gravel. see, i have to ride this road everyday to get to work. ice on road is not good for bikes. gravel on road is not good for bikes. theres no way i am riding down a hiway with gravel on top of ice!
