The Sixties

2/17/11
rode 28 miles



  


Ah, the sixties.
The 19-sixties are remembered fondly by aging hippies.
People in their 60's start to scare you when you're 53.
Temperatures in the sixties make for wonderful bicycling.

Rode 28 miles, 65F, trail - mostly paved, some unpaved and muddy.

Rode the Eliza Furnace / Jail Trail to the Ft. Duquesne Bridge, along the Allegheny to Millvale and Washington's Landing, along the Ohio to the Penitentiary (and - why isn't that called the Other Jail Trail?), back to the Ft. Duquesne Bridge, across the Ft. Pitt bridge, the Station Square trail to Southside down to the American WaterWorks detour, back to the Hot Metal bridge to the trailhead.
