On today’s ride, I passed some of Las Vegas’s finest doing some training. They had a rope slung around the very top of a Mexican Fan Palm so I guess they were learning how to climb palm trees in a rush? I said a quiet thank you to one of the men. Isn’t the graffiti ugly?
It’s painted on a wall that hides a large apartment complex and you can see areas all along this wall where the graffiti has been painted over. Paint wars in Las Vegas I guess. This tunnel is not the tunnel that has all of the rubbish and dirty blankets and such where homeless folks are sleeping.
I have taken the advice of some of you here and stopped riding that way which is really no big deal. There are better places to ride anyway.
The mountain’s photo is of the west side of Las Vegas Valley, part of which is an ancient fault line. I mentioned yesterday about the lower tire pressure causing more drain on the battery, today I used a little more leg power which seemed to even the balance of leg power and battery usage after a solid fifteen-mile ride.
