I cleaned the driveside seatstay enough to install this Cateye red blinkie light. I kept clipping these lights onto my seatbag, and kept losing them. So this one is 'permanently' attached.
My dual-headlight setup. Not super sophisticated, but it throws enough light for dark early morning commutes.
Why so dirty? Most of my ride is pavement, except for one small portion where the trail runs under the South Omaha Bridge Road. This part of the trail is not paved, and there's a huge amount of runoff through that underpass. This makes for a sticky, sloppy mess. Even though I walk the bike through it, I still pick up a huge amount of mud on my tires (and shoes). I'm still looking for a detour around this part of the trail...I can go around the overpass, but I still have to walk through mud and cross a busy road as well. Hopefully, the city has plans to pave or re-gravel this part of the trail.
In the meantime, I'll hope for warmer and drier days!
