    Took some time today. Grabbed a broom, and swept the cinders, and glass from the berm of the road along my property. May not sound like much, but I live on a small farm which is on both sides of the road. Approximately a 1/4 mile on each side. They are part of the road, but they are on the right side of the white line. These berms are perfect for riding on as they are anywhere from 2 to 4 feet in width. It would be great if all my neighbors did the same. I'm sure a bunch of you know what it's like hitting cinders going around a downhill bend at 30+ mph. Not too much fun in my book. That extra 2 to 4 feet can seem like 20 on a busy country road.

    I think at the next club meeting, i'm going to bring up a sign campaign. Keep your berms clean, and you get a sign "Bicycle Friendly Property". I think i'll start by putting them up on mine. Can't hurt to try.
