YA CAN’T GET THERE FROM HERE (trail closure)

After 5 days of not being able to get out and ride I finally made it out today … only to discover ya can’t get there from here … at least not by way of the bike trail. I rode about 14 miles on the trail when I came upon a closed gate and a barricade sign stating the road was closed. So I had to turn around and go back the way I had come. That pretty much ended my ride for the day. It was cold out there today and my hands were cold. I had other things I needed to do anyway so it worked out well.

Anyway, I just love it when construction people fail to put up signage back at the previous trail exit letting you know the trail is closed ahead. Oh well, I was out for exercise anyway. The reason the trail is closed is because the electric company has erected new poles and they are now in the process of pulling new wires up onto the poles. The wires will cross over the river as they go their merry way. Anyway, the entire project is suppose to last thru this month so there is a long way to go since it is early Dec. I will just have to deal with it. There are other trails to ride … thankfully. And there is a way around this area to get back onto that trail and ride the rest of it. It involves riding on and crossing some busy streets but I have done it many hundreds of times. So I am going to …


A FREE GIFT awaits you!
