Fat Tuesday, Indeed

3/4/2014 222# 15m 32F
Finally, a day of riding temperatures. 32F and a bright, blue day.

Started at Riverfront Park on the Southside. Crossing the Birmingham Bridge, met a cyclist with more headlights on her helmet than I have on mine (she has 4, I only have 3). She was riding a cool LWB 'bent with a kitty-litter pannier, quite a rig.

Rode into Uptown. Met world-famous cyclist and infra-guru SaraW and picked up a Seattle Sports rolltop trunk bag from her that I've wanted for quite a while. A very enjoyable visit.

Departed via the Armstrong Tunnel, the Jail, and the Jail Trail.

Took the Hot Metal Bridge and rode out to Costco. The trail fence was damaged, looked like a vehicle had struck it; tweeted a photo to the Steel Valley Trail Council. Reversed. 15 miles.


  1. Congrats on the elusive new bag! Confused, I had to Google "LWB 'bent bike"... results come up with pics of folks riding recumbents. "How weird!"
