This is not “challenge related”, just a bit about my bike ride today. I met up with my bike buddy to scout a route we had found on maps to see if it was worth keeping for future riding. It isn’t.
At the park where we met up, there is this monument that I have visited in the past.
I have never seen a monument to vicitims of drunk drivers. I find it rather interesting.
The weather was plenty cloudy but in the mid 50s which seemed quite warm compared to the low 40s and hi 30s we had just a few days ago. I had to actually peel off a layer.
Our route took us across the Intersate (I-5) on a bike/pedestrian bridge. So glad to not be dodging that traffic.
NIce bridge for us to cross over on. And we can’t fall off.
The ride itself was a bit nondescript and we decided to not keep it in our riding arsenal. We did make a nice potty stop at a fun park that neither of us had been to.
An actual metal slide which I thought went out with the dinosaurs. But here is a great one that slides down into the ‘lake’! Fish all around.
Nice that we got to see this lake as there was no access, and very little view, to the real lake from this spot.
Of course I had a great day riding with Cindy (as usual), and though we are not taken with this route, we are happy to have had the adventure of scouting it out — and finding that park ;’-)
