2007-04-21 Bike

Random solo bike ride, heading East, then poking around (ostensibly house hunting :-)) on the East shore. Some poor route choices resulted in some time spend in nasty neighborhoods and REALLY nasty roads. My original plan was to work my way north, cross the river at the 81/322 bridge, head up to Marysville, then down 850 and back over the ridge via Lambs Gap. That plan failed miserably when I realized that 81 is an Interstate. I actually had no choice but to ride it for a mile or two, but there was no way I was going to cross the river on that bridge. So I had to head back down front street and cross the Taylor bridge. By that time, I was almost home, and I didn't have the energy to go up the ridge. It would have been 6 miles on 11/15 to Marysville (which is a crappy road), and I was already a bit tired. So I poked around in the area north of Market / South of 81 (again, ostensibly house hunting :-)).

Stats: 40 miles or so, 136 HR average.
