On The Road To Plant City

If you have been cycling the last two days you know the winds are strong out of the east -- a fact of life I accepted while cycling into the teeth of the steady gusts while biking east on US 92 from Tampa to Plant City Sunday morning.

I used a bathroom at the Seminole Hard Rock Sunday morning and is there a more depressing scene than old blobs of people sitting like zombies in front of slot machines, with a cigarette dangling out of the cornr of their mouths.

Then it was off to Plant City after cycling a bit on the I-4/US 92 ramp to Seffner but not before I took in the view of the biggest confederate flag at the I-4/I-75 junction. Makes Tampa Bay so proud, doesn't it, to see the Confederate Flag flying at the crossroads of our region's two major highways?

Confederate flag fans pay tribute by leaving a Marlboro pack in front of the flag at a small parking lot in front of the flagpole.

Vending by bicycle along US 92 on the way to Plant City.

Beautiful outdoor artwork: Wild boar vs. boar-fighting canine.

In doubt about the marketing approach for your business? Just put sexy legs on whatever you'r trying to sell -- like long-legged sandwiches at Norma's on US 92 in Plant City.
