Yesterday I came up with a flat rear tire, so I went in search of a patch kit. Ken will be happy to know, I found one at a bicycle shop in Peoria. So now I have a local ally/source, a patch kit and a tire tool for bicycle tires.
Still managed a very nice 3 mile evening ride.
This morning I decided to explore a little farther out to a place the map calls Grand Canal Linear Park. Turned out to be a power plant.
However, I managed a 5.7 mile ride. Longest so far, with a head wind both ways. Had fun though, so maybe tomorrow I'll ride over to L.A.
Pic #1: The official park sign.
Pic #2: The actual park; a small seating area with a view of the Cardinal's Stadium. And yes, it appears there is some smoke coming from the stadium.
Pic#3: The odometer is gathering miles now I have the speedo fixed.
Pic #4: Well, it looks like a family is using the park.
