A couple weeks ago I got a rear view mirror for my helmet/glasses, but I’ve been slow to actually use it. After finishing up a bunch of work this afternoon, I decided to give it a go and take the Surly out for a ride. I hooked up the mirror on my glasses, and it felt so weird. I felt off balance, somehow, and not at all sure I would be able to see anything useful out of the thing. I mean, I wear glasses (hence the place to put it), and the mirror is in my blind spot! But I got used to it fairly quickly. It is so cool to be able to see behind me. I’m going to have to remember to keep looking forward. I took the mirror on a ride up and down Claiborne. That’s a street you want to keep your eye on, on all sides. On my way home I stopped to take a picture of this One-Way sign, downed at S. Claiborne and Pine. There’s no replacement sign, of course, so I’m not exactly sure which street is supposed to go which way, only. I also passed a downed stop sign on ride today. I hope cars are using good gut instincts. And I can’t believe it took me so long to put eyes in the back of my head.
