Today's Adventure

2 May

For one reason or another we haven’t been able to do a long ride like we planned to before heading off to ride the Katy Trail (see post). 

Today we took off south towards Oklahoma City, a new route for us, normally we ride east or west and away from traffic.  We were downtown recently and thought it would be fun to ride our bikes there from home some day. 

Today turned out to be the day.

It hadn’t been our plan, we didn’t know how we would feel but ended up feeling good and decided to do it.  Downtown wasn’t busy, not that long ago it was a ghost town on Sundays.  Not anymore.  Because of the revitalization efforts through MAPS, etc. downtown Okc is flourishing.  It’s good to see.

We stopped for lunch at the Java Daves where we could eat outside with our bikes (we’re very close) since we didn’t bring our locks and then headed home via Lincoln Blvd.

I used to work on Lincoln Blvd. next to the state capitol and couldn’t help grinning while I was riding along towards my old stompin’ grounds, the Sequoyah Building.  Major grin.

Being so close I had to stop and take a picture just for old times sake.

It was a long but very enjoyable ride – 42 miles.  Our longest day on the Katy Trail will be 49 so we should be in good shape.

A fun day.

    Great post- love the pictures! Heading into that south wind was surely gruesome!! I rode at Hefner for a bit, and it was tough. The S wind coming home was certainly a VERY nice treat!!
    Congrats on the ride. It was a beautiful day for it for sure. 🙂

    Thanks Tanya! It was a great day to ride. We headed out around 11am so the south wind wasn’t as strong as it was in p.m. I bet it was brutal around Hefner, always nice to have a tailwind on the ride home though. 🙂
