Lemonade at OTB

Wed 7/16 21m #221
Back on the bike after two days off, following the DC trip. Parked at the Bastille, hoping to make a 6pm event in Shadyside. (tl-dr: didn't quite make it). Managed to drop my chain on the ramp up to the 31st Street Bridge. Had a great, brisk ride in rush hour traffic across Lawrencville and Bloomfield to get there.

Having missed the start time for the event, decided to improvise. K and I rode across Oakland, down Junction Hollow and across the Hot Metal Bridge to OTB. She had the Thick Burger, I had portabello tacos and a double serving of black bean and corn mishmash, mondo nom-nom-nom all around.

Very pleasantly surprised to see AH at a nearby table.

Departed in the dark via the Jail Trail. Saw Mikhael knocking down more miles. Across the Ft. Duquesne Bridge, stayed on the streets until we were around the Casino just due to the darkness, then the trail back to the Bastille.
