Back Out for Another Run on Highway 555
Sunday, April 22, 2007
Couldn't resist another run on Highway 555. Take an easy day today, only rode 150 miles. It was way hot, and had to ditch the leather jacket.
First stop of today's trip is the UPS Store to ship off my old digital camera. It was not taking good pictures all the time, so I decided it was time for an upgrade. I started out heading west on Tenth Street until Shadeland Avenue, the corner the UPS Store is located. The people are always so friendly in that store.
From there, I continued west on Tenth Street, following the route that the GPS laid out for me. I was heading to Shelbi Street, a favorite place for me to eat! I came upon Sherman Avenue, and then headed south to Prospect Avenue. I could take this west to Fountain Square.
Lunch was delicious, as it always is there, if you are near the area, I highly recommend grabbing a bite to eat. I headed out of there on Virginia Avenue, which goes north and west and into downtown. After passing under the Conseco Field House Parking lot, I took Delaware north to Tenth Street. I jogged two blocks west, and then four blocks north to TV Station.
First off, Kasey and I would like to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!
Up until three years ago being in Indiana, riding on the first day of the year was a special event. Of the times I have been able to ride on January One, those rides have cut short by cold winds, rain, and one started out with the mercury hovering five degrees below freezing. Fortunately, the late morning, early afternoon brought temperatures in the mid fifties.
2019 in North Carolina was starting out with clear skies, a sun blazing overhead, and air warming up to near seventy degrees. Just to cover their butts, I believe the local weather forecasters put in a small chance for rain. Those are all ingredients to make it a no-brainier when it comes to going for a ride.
Everything seemed in place, until we were all suited up. For some reason, Kasey couldn't hear me in her Bluetooth headset. All of mine seemed to work perfectly. After a few minutes, we gave up, as the roads were begging us to use them…
