Cheneyville Bridge 2011/2018

I came across Bill’s Journal cycling from Colorado to Virginia and was particularly interested in the section covering Illinois, and especially Vermilion county (Paxton to Lafayette Indiana).

The description of Bill’s thoughts about the motel here in town, while very accurate, are still the source of a good chuckle.

Many of the descriptions and photos are places familiar to me, and the bridge over the North Fork north of Cheneyville in particular.  Pretty cool to think Bill cycled through here — if I had only known!

While long haulers aren’t unknown here, they are few and far between.  Last summer I met one riding a Yuba cargo bike with quite a load — including 2 cat carriers with kitties!  Unfortunately he declined a photograph.

Here is the now famous Cheneyville Bridge in 2011 and 2018:

Bills’ Long Haul Trucker 2011

My Raleigh 2018

Other than some faded graffiti paint the scene is pretty much the same.

(Now, can someone educate me (quite a challenge in its own right) — on how to make the photos larger?)

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Nice juxtaposition!

    This might answer your question about setting the size of the image:

    1) Go to your post

    2) At the very top, click “Edit Post” and then insert your cursor in the post where you want the image to go

    3) Near the top and toward the left, click “Add Media”

    4) When the thumbnails are displayed, click the one you want

    5) If more than one copy of the image you want, click each one in turn and, as you do so, look in the upper right corner to see details about name, date, and size

    6) If more than one copy of the image you want, you will want the one with the largest dimensions, such as 1500 x 1211, not the one with 669 x 500

    7) Click to select the image you want

    8) Under the “ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS” heading at lower right, use the “Size” pop-up to select the dimensions you want, usually “large” or “full size”

    9) Then click “Insert into Post” in lower right corner

    10) If necessary, go back and delete the small version of the image from your post

      Thanks Bill – I have been posting tiny pictures too because I didn’t spend the time to look around during the load process. I was working on the idea that I should load the pic and then enlarge it – but that certainly didn’t work!
