 Lunch Time Ride
I rode the Trek today for the first time in ages. I rode to Cleveland Park then started up the Laurens Road Bypass hill and over to Sliding Rock Park where I got on the Swamp Rabbit Trail. I stopped to look at the repairs behind the apartment complex where the river was working its way under the trail. It's been closed for a couple of months. It looks good and I hope that the work does its job. I rode back to Cleveland Park and worked my way by the USPS and across the Hampton Avenue Bridge. I took Old Buncombe Road to the Lakeview spur and back to the Swamp Rabbit Trail.

I stayed on the trail except when I took my long loop around Furman. Before I made it to Furman I met Steve Y riding with who I think was Tom. They were bundled up like Eskimos! I turned around across from Tandem Creperies and stopped at the TReeHouse. I gave Ragan a hug and talked to Rachel. I waved to Gene and Kristen came out to say Hello. I had a BLT with a fruit cup and bought a mulberry cookie to take home to Cissi.

Somewhere along the way I pulled or strained something in the back inside of my left knee. I think that I strained it while climbing the Laurens Road Bypass hill and aggravated it climbing the hill on the backside of Furman.

I stopped at Washington Street behind the Cafe as there was a guy with a flat. I talked to him for a while then left him to finish up. Then I stopped at the Commons and had a small cafe au lait from Methodical Coffee. Then I rode my regular route home.
