Nothing to do with today’s ride, other than that building once housed a Western Auto where the bicycle for today’s the ride was purchased in 1975.
Also shown is our one and only wall mural that was destroyed when the building partially collapsed and then was razed.
When WA disintegrated it became a Radio Shack which in turn disintegrated (more ways than one!)
So, today met up with former colleague Dave and he suggested we do the CC ride.
The CC Loop is an abbreviation for a ~7 mile ride around 2 Township Sections to the east of town and back. Since it goes by the Conservation Club we call it CC for short. Temperatures just at freezing, and little wind encouraged us to do a little longer route today. Temperatures have been below normal for some time but not low enough to freeze the water.

Western Flyer and Dave’s Trek at an amazingly graffiti-free bridge.
Moderate fog that increased throughout the day.
Dave has had some severe back/leg issues that for now seem to be remediated and this is his longest ride in quite some time — do, but don’t over-do.
Great to be back riding again ! 🙂
