First Real Ride of the New Year

Monday, March 8, 2010

Now who would have thought, two rides in March? Mother Nature could be setting up the Hoosier State for a rude awaking, maybe in April or May.

I dread going inside. I just can never believe that people can work that slow!

I continued north to Tenth Street, and then headed East. Yeah, I made the most of a big circle, but isn't that really all my trips?

At Franklin Road, I headed back north once again. I would be on Franklin Road until Pendleton Pike. This road, which has been under construction forever it seems, head…
