Rode 41 miles today, Western Penitentiary, 31st Street Bridge, Market Square, Hot Metal Bridge, to the Riverton Bridge between Duquesne and McKeesport; and then back to the car through a gauntlet of dejected baseball fans walking away from the Pirates afternoon game.
Scott Adams had an article in the day's Wall Street Journal, adorned with the image above, and mindful of it I choose to ride without my radio and earbuds, forsaking my NPR opportunity in order to ride like it's 1959.
- The trail below HofBrauHaus at Station Square is looking more and more ready to open, it looks like all that remains to be done is few railings and some landscaping. Saturday's report seems to carry good news about the path through Keystone Metals.
- There were a lot of people walking their bikes around Keystone Metals on the train track ballast, and there were a lot of people riding around the perimeter of the Sandcastle parking lot. It seems like Sandcastle is good with that.
- It is so cool to be able to ride from Manchester on the North Side to McKeesport without ever using a road.
