While making my way around the town this weekend, I came across some fantastic signs.
Have you ever wished for an extra hour in the day? Well apparently someone here found it. Who knew it was at a coin laundry? What a pleasant discovery just next door to a new-to-me Ethiopian restaurant?
Next, while meandering downtown, I found out that the Convention Center was hosting the National Pavement Expo. Ok, which one of you was keeping this secret from me? You’re fired. I mean, think of all the different kinds of nationally recognized pavement (gasp, even asphalt!) I could have seen on display?! Just so you know, if the International Pea Gravel Convention is going to be anywhere within a 500 mile radius, you better give me a heads up!
Then on Sunday I made my first ever winter weather bike ride. I just could not bear the thought of attempting to ride the equivalent of 25 miles on my trainer, so I bundled up and headed South to a rural part of the next county over.
In two different places I had to go through a single lane underpass under the railroad tracks. While that sounds treacherous alone, it’s also on an S-curve with no mirrors. I only had one close call in the 4 times I went through these.
And finally, while riding through an area that us Southerners like to call Cun-Tree (that’s “country” for the rest of you), I came across some very suspicious cows. The first time I rode by, I noticed they all stopped and watched me carefully. So, on my way back, I stopped to see them. They were exceptionally apprehensive this time around. I snapped a couple pictures anyway.
