Request made for list of bicycle movies

On the ride I was talking to John and his friend about "The Flying Scotsman". He was wondering what other bicycle related movies are out there. Of course, Breaking Away comes to mind first. Let me know what else is available on DVD. Breaking Away American Flyers Pee Wee's Big Adventure

Sunday in the Park

Image
Blacklick Park is south of where we live. It was hot in the sun, over 90 degrees. Another gnome sighting when my wife stopped for a drink at one of the many benches throughout the park It has a crushed limestone path that makes a loop at one end. It is nice scenery. After the ride in the park I rode back by way of Palmer, Mink, Havens Corner. It was 22 miles total, traffic was heavy on Palmer. View Larger Map

Saturday Night at the Crew Stadium

I got free tickets from my boss (Thanks Judy) for the Crew Game. We were winning in the first period. Then we stumbled and lost 3-1. Here are some photos.

COP Fall Hoot Ride Report

Image
I ended up riding the short route with my friend Bob. It was supposed to be 35 miles, but ended up being 33 miles. We rode most of the roads that are used in the Millersport Corn Ride. The start/end point was at Bloom Carroll High School. We rode in a loop to the northeast toward Buckeye Lake. The other group rode the 65 mile route which headed south into the hills before hooking up with the shorter route in the north. The gnome sighting is from a corn field, which was indicative of the scenery for most of the ride.

Haunted Hoochie

My wife and I headed over to the Haunted Hoochie haunted house at Dead Acres in Pataskala on East Broad. If you like haunted houses this is a pretty good one. It was rated in the top 13 haunted houses in the country. Check out their website . It could be a little extreme for some so take a look at the site for some of the "attractions" before you head over. We saw several people who freaked out.
