Triathlon HOV Lane Safety Sweep

8.2.2014 10m #221
Every year, a bunch of intrepid folks go run and swim and bike in the Pittsburgh Triathlon. This happens to involve the I279 HOV Lanes on the Parkway North.

These lanes are closed from Friday evening through Sunday mid-day. Holy Deutschtown Cyclovia, Batman!

But remember, safety isn't free. Somebody has to go out and inspect the course. Think of the potential for disaster: namely, a tri-cyclist falling off their bike somewhere other than the transition zone.

Took a very nice ride from Chateau, up to Perry Highway, joined the HOV Lane, then enjoyed the graceful descent to the NorthShore. It's kind of fun.

Anything in the name of safety.
