Obstacle course

I get around town primarily by bicycle. Since the city planners have made it nearly impossible to travel any distance greater than a half-mile in Wichita without using arterial roads, I often ride on sidewalks. This can present difficulties. Here’s what I encounter when I go the the grocery story:

Badly-placed banners.

Badly-parked cars.

Badly-placed parking spaces.

Broken beer bottles.

Puncture vine.

Badly-placed hedges.

Badly-placed hedges infiltrated by Toxicodendron radicans.
