I guess it means "Lay bicycle here" since everything else is blocking the path anyway.

Or could be a block meant originally for a cycling track laying unused which ended up being used here. And saved a few bucks for the contractor.

The "greenies" always want it both ways... they want you to give up your car for a bike, but also don't want any trees cut down!

Wood appear that progress is blocked, and we will have to foot the bill and find our way around it, and cut our losses for future progress.

Always hustling to get somewhere - it's time for those OCD bike riders to stop and smell the flowers.

In an old episode of comic strip presents.

The police toss a suspect into a pole which kills him.

One of the officers then exclaimed.

" Oh look... Another suicide.. what's say we stuff him down this manhole."

Scuba Duba episode?

Symbol for "cycling challenge ahead"

I did not see the utility pole coming (couldn't see the forest pole for the trees)

Then it hit me

Away from the coast, the saying changes from "take a long walk off a short pier" to "take a long ride into a near pole!"

My sister and her now ex husband and myself we were going to a trade show, and the facility had like a cemented park like area prior to entering, it was all open areas, with benches and statues and stuff.

As we were talking I noticed my sister and her now ex weren’t watching were they were going, and I said look out for the pole.... and her ex stopped just short of walking into it.. He said thanks.... I responded... I was talking about the other pole... he didn’t get it... but my sister couldn’t stop laughing. You see, her ex was of polish descent.

At least there’s no water hazard.... as far as the rest... I can psych myself up and overcome.... “be the pole,... now be the tree, now the signpost... now the oncoming traffic....”

Looks like another scheduling SNAFU. The concrete crew arrived before the tree removal company.

Much like any new pavement gets trenched through a week later by some utility!
