Riding Bikes in January: Not Bad At All

1/8/13 16M
Met S. and R. under the Burmingham Bridge and rode around town, the trails remaining mostly unusable.

Took Carson Street to the Smithfield St. Bridge, the Convention Center Trail out to the Strip District where we stopped for cappuccino's. Rode east through Lawrenceville and climbed up through the Allegheny Cemetery.

Took Penn Avenue, rode through Friendship where I always get kind of turned around, ended up on Ellsworth and rode down Panther Hollow to the Jail Trail, Hot Metal Bridge, stopped at Thick Bikes and then rode back to the Birmingham Bridge.

It was great to ride in relatively moderate weather and a sunny afternoon.

  1. My first year commuting through the winter, in New England, no less, and what all the hard-cores say is true: a whole new world has opened to me! so happy I have the opportunity even just the one day a week.
