 Loads of Detours
I rode the Surly from home to the park then across town to the Orange Line, but it was closed due to a train derailment. I took a detour to Old Buncombe and got on the trail at Lakeview. I took Watson around Travelers Rest and stopped at the TRee House for brunch. I talked to Ragan, then Gene arrived while I was outside eating, and Kristen came out with a little girl that had just finished art class. She told me that she painted a sea dragon. I rode back down the trail, but it was closed at Westfield Street through an apartment complex to Broad Street. I went through Falls Park, but Furman Way is still closed with a miserable detour. The detour around the McDaniel Street Bridge is closed with a detour through the construction equipment to Woodland Way. I got back to the park then road up Hillside to get home.
