Well! I Never!!

Have photographed any of these things before  .. ..  ..   …

Hi Bill, since you have shown me yours, I will show you mine  🙂

Items in the seat bag which is switched among bicycles as needed

Spare tube and tire levers, patch kits, Fix a Flat type inflator/sealant,

Crescent wrench (Diamond Back has bolt-on wheels), C02 inflator, small screwdriver, zip ties, tissues, and a map of township roads.

(Presta valve adapter is for someone who might require one, strictly Schrader on all my bicycles)

Storage shed from an earlier age

Just down the alley is this attraction

“Welcome to Hoopeston” banner

Pretty much says it all  😉

Dandy Lions

Automotive road art — Second Avenue

Road Art 2.0

Emerging corn

So, next, I will take a tour of Front Street where some very interesting yet-to-be photographed places await — Even Chip and Joanna or Ben and Erin would have a challenge there.

Everyone be thinking about stuff for the Scavenger Challenge coming next month.

More info to come later.

Thanks!

 

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.

    I remember my dad used that “Well, I NEVER” phrase in mock outrage. I thought it was hilarious. I also remember some of my high school friend–the ones who had jobs and could afford a car–creating road art like the ones you showed. I could never quite peel out like that on the rare occasions when my folks let me use their Oldsmobile 88. When they inherited a second car, a Ford Pinto, it was impossible.

      I thought maybe a Scion iQ did the art work, but maybe not.
      I had a few Olds 88’s that would go like a bat out of Hades, but didnt want to stop, change direction, or pass gas station.

    Cool road art! I’ll have to check our corn fields to see if anything is emerging yet. I suspect not.
