Guerilla Maintenance



I hadn't noticed until my friend Wren pointed it out while he was visiting Pueblo, but ever since, I really notice the steep angle of the Union Avenue bike lane between the library and the bridge. The street is basically an arc, so if you're riding on the center line it's flat, but the closer you get to the curb, the steeper the angle. Add a nice layer of gravel left over from winter and screaming down the hill in the bike lane becomes a pretty sketchy task. I didn't expect the city to sweep the bike lanes anytime soon, so I decided to bring my broom with me on my way to work on Friday and do the job myself.  I swept the worst 50 meter section of the reach and in my opinion it's much better now.
