3/17/2008 Ride Report - A St. Patty Day Camel Toe Adventure!

32 Miles total - 45 degrees - a little rain
3 rides total
3 bars total
8 to start, 4 went the distance (32 miles), 2 went 38 miles.

The major stop was the American Addition Park.

Second ride.
We rode from the High Beck north and then East down to Franklin Park. We rode through the park and headed west into town to the waterfront. We rode down the path to the end and rode East toward High Street. We headed north to Round Bar. The other four riders who split off must have went back to the High Beck when we crossed High heading to the waterfront.

After a round in the Round Bar it started to rain a little. We headed northeast to Carabar. Chris did his best Michael Flatley imitation when called upon.

Third ride.
Peer pressure forced me to join a few people for one last ride around town. We headed west through town to the waterfront and rode south on the trail again to the end. Through the impound yards and back to High. We rode north on High and broke up and rode our separate ways.

Another one in the books.
