Is It a Bike Lane or a Gutter?

The things you find on the streets of St Petersburg!  These two little guys decided to hitch a ride with me to work by embedding themselves in my rear tire on two different morning commutes.  Which got me to thinking - is it a bike lane?  Or, is it a gutter?

I don't want to take away from what the city of St Petersburg, FL is trying to do, but there is not much effort it seems to keep the gutters, err bike lanes, clean.  Currently I am riding on Continental Gatorskin Hard Shell tires, so they do a really good job of keeping my tires inflated.  However, I know of no tire that can match 3 inch nails.  I also seem to always grab them on my rear (drive) wheel.  I have never understood that. 

Regardless, I will continue my commute and look for ways to avoid road debris, but you also, be safe out there.  There is likely a few items waiting to "nail" you too!

be safe
