 Wrong Turn Wednesday
Today I left the house on the Trek and rode to Cleveland Park. I followed the trail through falls Park until the trail was closed at Willard Street. I went around the outage and took the Hampton Station spur to Old Buncombe Road. I turned off at the Family Dollar and cut across US 276 and SC 291 to Worley Road. I took it across SC 253 to Crestwood then took the Dreamland Route. I made a wrong turn where I jog right to Dreamland and rode over a mile before I stopped to discover that I had missed the turn. I had a long climb back up the hill. I found Dreamland and worked my way to Dawson and Davidson where I stopped at Pete’s house. Then I went toward the gold course and made another wrong turn down a steep hill. Then I had to turn around and climb back up that hill. I rode back to Old Buncombe and followed my OBR/Watson Road route back to town. I stopped at the TReehouse and had a strawberry/pineapple slushy with a bag of nuts. I bought a piece of banana nut bread for Cissi. I rode back down the trail. I saw Ken riding up the trail at Furman. I saw Officer Mike at the Furman railroad car. He and I helped a couple with a bike that the chain kept falling off. From there I rode down the trail and took the Lakeview spur to OBR and took it to the Hampton Station spur and the Hampton Avenue Bridge back by the post office. I took Broad Street through town and back to the Park. I climbed the big hill on Briarcliff again.
