Chances for me to ride have been hard to come by lately, so when I had time, weather, and mood all on my side, I jumped on the bike!
Well, actually I had to find my pump and inflate the tires first. Â It has been a few weeks since I last rode.
I’ve been eyeing the fresh concrete of the new US 231 bypass for a while. Â It is always fun to ride a new road without the bother of motorized traffic, and my route took me to the south end of the bypass near the Branigan bridge.
Only about half a mile is paved so far, so this trip was cut short. Â I’ll try again in the few weeks, or maybe attack from the SR26 crossing and head south.
The plan for this highway includes a separate bike lane/trail, but there is no sign of it so far. We’ll see.
