BIKE HIKE LOG

Dist: 18.5 mi. Avg spd: 15.1 mph. Cadence: 88 rpms. Route: West on 56th Street to Brownsburg, south on State Hwy 267, southeast on Crawfordsville Road, north on Dandy Trail.
Conditions: Sunny, no clouds, windy, about 60 degrees. iPod listening: "Tapestry" by Carole King; "1" by Beatles. Classic retro.

Notes: I happened on to a regatta on Eagle Creek Reservoir. I've always admired rowers and want to try it sometime. My ride to Brownsburg was to meet up with 5th and 6th graders and chaperones from our church who are participating in SuperStart, a special event for pre-teens. I got involved in outdoor games and had lunch with the kids before heading back toward Indy. I don't recommend riding on 56th Street. Too busy and there is not enough shoulder to ride on if needed. All the colors are in full display today. Awesome!
