My second thought was, boy, this will be a pain for navigating around paving crews to work, to the grocery store, etc.
But when my biking-to-work self hit those satiny repaved streets, particularly the gorgeous stretch of Marcy from the church to Lincoln, I could not stop singing the praises of the repaving crews. Hallelujah! No more standing up on the pedals practically the whole length of the street!
Of course, when I cross Lincoln, all bets are off. O Glorious Repavers, any chance of heading east next?
