Is it ever gong to stop raining in central Ohio? We did have a nice weekend. The rain did hold off until overnight or late afternoon, well other than Sunday. May 7 should have seen me lining up to ride ride to Portsmouth and back the next day. Instead go north a couple of blocks to the North Market for the spring edition of the Market to Market ride This is a great bike path tour. It stretches the 13 miles from downtown at the North Market to the Hills Market in Worthington and then returns along the same path. I started at the North Market, enjoyed a nice breakfast of muffins, quiche coffee and orange juice, all included in the $15 entry fee, along with a great t-shirt. Once you arrive at the Hills Market. It is samples galore. This is definitely a weight gain ride.
Tuesday my lifelong buddy Bill was in town and we did a little more urban and path riding. Three Creeks to downtown up to Huntington Park and watched a little of the Clippers game, before heading back to Bexley for dinner. After finishing dinner and picking up the pace a little we made it back to the car just as the sun was setting. Nice day and a great 26 mile evening ride. On a side note the Clippers gave up a 6-0 lead and lost 10-7. There are still in first place though.
Lat Saturday was the first trip of the year to Johnstown to ride the bike path there. this is a nice path with sections that are in need of major maintenance. But it is a great path and out and back was 30 miles. Dodged rain and hail for a while on the way back, but a fun ride. Sunday was the Ride your bike to Taco Trucks. I skipped because of the never ending rain. Looks like a fun one. Ray George, lets do this one again.
Last night, Tuesday, I met other riders at the Franklinton Cycle Works and we rode to Elevator Brewery for the Ride the Elevator, a fundraiser for FCW. A total of 75+ showed up for the beer and ride.
All in all not a bad couple of weeks in the recovery from the winter pneumonia. Mileage is starting increase, depending on the weather anyway.
