The Flatwoods Ride -- With a New Wrinkle
It was a pleasure to alter the Flatwoods Park Ride, adding eight miles or so to my usual base, so that I could ride early this morning with my SHBC pals Jack "Ghost Rider" Sweeney and Doug "Philisophy Prof" Jesseph.
Here's Jack and Doug taking Harney Road toward Temple Terrace. We rode about 49 miles and moved at a pretty nice clip.
The Ghost Rider's Coney Island Lager jersey offers a smiling face that is a very appropriate part of the Ghost Rider's bike jersey collection.
When the city of Tampa decides to build a road the correct way, it's capable of doing the job. Witness the 40th Street Bridge in east Tampa, where a concrete barrier divides pedestrians from the roadway. There is a comfortable road shoulder to accommodate bicyclists and even a turn lane.
Riverfront house anyone?
