See that picture above? It’s the gateway arch to what might be known forever more as “Arch City, U.S.A.” Yes, we’ve got even more arches than we have radii. Here comes a small sampling of MY Town’s many glorious arches.
Architectural arches are great, but I needed to find some natural arches. Unfortunately, I don’t live in Utah. But I was able to find a few arches in the natural world. (By the way, I just noticed that the word “Architectural” contains the word “Arch.” Is that freaky, or what?)
Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

Really nice collection, Greg!
Nice Greg. Your town definitely has a lot of arches. And I love the Archie reference. So, hope you enjoy this.
Bob, that link brought back a pretty embarrassing memory for me. I was only ten years old, so please cut me some slack. I remember begging my parents to buy me a box of “Sugar Pops” or “Cocoa Crispies” or some other cereal like that because there was a 45-rpm record of that song attached to the box. I cut it out of the box and played it over and over on my folks’ stereo.
Hehe, I sort of vaguely remember that cereal boxes with records was a thing at some point.
YOUR town’s got ‘em alright. Nice ones too. Love that School House Square. AND “Six Arched Windows and a Lovely Sky”. Catch name.
Wow! Lots of arches in YOUR town!
The Sumerians would be proud — not sure if they knew comic Archie — probably not.
