Foggy Morning

Had to hose down and relube the bike after the ride on Tuesday, and I was able to get out this morning for a quick trip to the bridge.

Amazing shots ... I'm a sucker for fog. The first shot is especially awesome. Great job.

I had to do a double take when I saw the photo with the swallows! At first I thought it was a dirty lens or something. Nice pic!

Lots of good Champoo-Banana routes.

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=1192840 is one out to Sadorus and back. From Meadowbrook park I've got a handful more (I put "pedometer" in my blog search window ;)) - cut and paste follows; some of 'em come into town in funny places but that you can adapt... http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=343840

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=1090144


The first is http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=315763. - it's a "Philo-SIdney" route. Goes by nice horse farms; the mile into Philo is a bit busy so you can go one more mile and then turn left (East?). There's a Casey's in each town.

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=315819 is an eastbound route to St. Joseph, home of the GOlden Mine restaurant (and a Daairy Queen near the interestate). I may be one block too far SOuth in St. oe for the Golden Mine, but I don't think so.

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=315834 will take you through Tolono. This particular route takes you past the Freedom Station in Tolono, tho' you ccan also continue on 1200 (First STreet) South another mile and cutting across town on the South end. Coming North on 900 (Duncan Road), there is at the corner of ... hmmm... 1000? I think... on the right hand side, there's a water pump in the corner of a field which a cyclist's relation is pleased to let us use.

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=315834 is in the same direction but continues to take in the town of Sadorus; when you turn NOrth you'll go by a baseball park on the right (just after crossing the train tracks) that has bathrooms or something close to it. (If I remember right, the water from the fountain is nasty, though.)

Hi, Dan

I hope to be spending a few days riding in the W/Lafayette area next week. Is there any way to recognize you if I see you on the road? If you see an old touring bike with a red handlebar bag, somewhat tattered and with maps leaking out the edges, and the rider wearing civilian clothes, it could be me.

Spokes,

Actually, I'm in TN this week, so you probably won't see me.

However, I'm riding a black Trek Pilot, and I'll probably look sweaty and exhausted if the heat continues.

Have a good ride!

Dan
