Bravado and Nice CHP

I have a temp job at the Novato Costco. Too far to bike the whole way. A tidy run from the south Petaluma Park-and-Ride lot to Novato and back. 90% along the HWY 101 shoulder; hee, hee, hee! I will get seven days of thrills at about 18 miles a day. The computer is still flacky.

South-bound today I saw a big motorcycle and rider pulled over in a driveway along this section of open highway. I waved even before I saw it was a CHP officer. I didn't notice him wave back. I know he knew I was there though. Seconds later he waved over a motor-cycle. The putt-putt pulled onto the shoulder where I would have been forced into traffic to go around the stop. The officer waved the rider forward another quarter mile to where they could pull completely off of the shoulder, allowing me to pass safely. This was at the construction site for the Marin landfill interchange.

North-bound I checked out the construction. There is a possible bike tunnel through an overpass ramp. More likely it is a passage for the local farmers' cows as I saw a bikeable path on only one end of the tunnel. North-bound barricades forced me right to the edge of the traffic lane. Al;most as dicey as the south-bound San Antonio Creek bridge at the county line.
