So I decided to take a quick trip around the town before I put up the bike for the night and I made a turn after coming up a hill wide open and saw a police car. I shut down the engine and started pedaling as I noticed him adjust his position slightly, he was pulling out of a parking lot. I started thinking he was going to pull me over, but I kept pedaling and turned into the parking lot across from him. I pulled up to the store as if I was going to get off and go in and saw him turn the other way. Who knows if he noticed me riding up the hill or not, perhaps he had some other more important thing to address at the time. It's a small town he could easily have plans to stop me if he sees me another time. For now I can imagine that this is not an issue for him and perhaps I will be ignored as long as I ride safely and stay out of traffic. I wish there was an easy way to know everything is kosher with the local authorities.
