Video snip from the commute

Bicyclists can see and hear much better than car drivers.  This morning, I heard this fire truck approaching so long in advance that I had plenty of time to dutifully pull over and stop, and get my camera out.  The car driver who passed me took a tad longer.

Here is the 10-second drive-by: [video]

The video / youtube library reminds me:

How's that DIY switch on the bottom bracket generator doing?

So far, the DIY switch has been perfectly reliable. The switch got a little testy when it and the generator wheel became caked with gravel fines and crud during a ride on the Tobacco Trail in the rain, but it continued to work fine.

Thanks for asking.
