North Fork Garceau

2 Raleighs take a break at the North Fork of the Vermilion river east of town

A surprisingly graffiti-free bridge railing

View east, upstream, spring struggles to arrive in Vermilion County, Illinois

A somewhat precariously tilted Garceau* at the North Fork Conservation Club

The club is located at an abandoned gravel pit along a valley train of sand and gravel down slope of the Chatsworth moraine.

*Perhaps we at Cycle365 should propose adding Garceau to the dictionary of new words  🙂

“Could you please direct me to the nearest Garceau?”

Has a rather pleasant tone and ambiance to it don’t you think?

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.

    Over here, they’d just look at me funny and assume it was my accent… or that I was using some American slang. I do speak Australian and American English… and I do, on occasion, forget which slang term comes from which country. I just flop back and forth and use them interchangeably. It is only when someone looks at me a little funny that I realise that slang term must be from the country I am not presently in. I can say “rubbish” or “trash”, “toilet” or “bathroom”, “round-trip” or “return”, “lift” or “elevator”, “weed whacker” or “whipper snipper” (BTW, my dad absolutely loves “wheelie bin” and “whipper snipper”).
