I often rant and bitch about the ignorant motorists that often put my safety in jeopardy during my bicycle rides. But now I must offer a compliment. Doing my Fifty Friday yesterday I passed three tractors mowing county right-of-ways. (Why they continue mowing these areas is another issue). As I approached each one, they stopped mowing until I was well past them and their machinery. I really appreciated that because those mowers throw quite a bit of debris, (empty beer cans, rocks, dead animals etc.)onto the road. After exchanging friendly waves, and when I was well beyond their machines, they continued their mowing. I would like to thank the Tazewell county mowing crew for their consideration.
