 Wanddring Ride
I rode the Straggler from home through Cleveland Park and out to the Poe Mill area to see how the construction and the new trail spur are coming. I also wandered around the McDaniel Street Bridge as it is now open. The trail is open underneath it, but they didn't improve it at all. They increased the size of the pipe that is just overhead. I think that if I stood up on the pedals that my helmet would hit the pipe. I rode OBR to the Lakeview Spur then took the trail to Travelers Rest. I stopped at the TRee House and had scrambled eggs with bacon and sliced tomatoes and a café au lait. I bought a chocolate chip cookie for Cissi. I took OBR back to Furman and rode around the lake. I had a funny experience passing two guys and a girl. They got on the wrong side and I passed them as they got out of the way. I went up the hill while they cut across the bridge, so I passed them again and we exchange some funny remarks. I stopped at the bathroom and they passed me again, I passed them coming out and we had another witty exchange. But my chain had come off the chainrings, so I stopped to put it back on. I passed them right before I left the lake trail to get on the SRT and we had one more funny exchange. I rode home from there. zI did see Ken crossing Sulphur Springs.I took Broad Street back to McDaniel Street then went through the park. I stopped on Hillside and talked with Pat for a long time.
