Bike Ride – May 9, 2015

Heading south I cut through the Battelle complex.  They had hundreds of lilac bushes in bloom.  It smelled great.


This is looking down from Goodale Blvd. on to where I crashed last week.  They fixed the lip on the ramp by putting down another layer of asphalt.

Looking west.

Looking east.

Goodale Blvd.

I headed east on Goodale towards the arena district.  The bike path doesn’t go very far and you just get dumped onto Goodale which turns into the Goodale Neil Connector.  That is basically a freeway until it hits Neil Avenue.  When an exit lane from I-670 joins the road on the right you are basically in the middle of multiple lanes where the traffic is doing 60 mph.

Arena district, across the street from Huntington Park.  New Columbia Gas building.

Apartments/condos next door.


I went west on Brodbelt Lane next to Huntington Park into the undeveloped area of the district and came across this old building being torn down.

I posted a picture of the building on September 6, 2014.  It was a neat old building and I hate to see it torn down but I’m sure I’ll be posting a picture of something new going up in a year.

The building next door has been turned into offices.

From the same location but looking just a little north.  Old Huntington Building, LaVeque tower & US Bank Building.

There are a lot of beautiful old houses south of the park.

This house always has a beautiful garden.  It was beautifully decorated at Christmas too.

Back up north on High Street.  It must be graduation day.

Ohio State Graduation Day

Went up to Indianola Avenue briefly where there a bunch of fraternities and sororities.

Indianola Elementary School – 1808

Usually when I head back I cut through campus but today I took High Street all the way to Lane Avenue.  I couldn’t believe how much new construction is in progress in that area.  It goes over a block south on High and over a block west on Lane.

Back to Whetstone Park, 22 miles.

    Can you suggest they turn down the ‘Flats II’ while they are tearing down things? It looks like just another mediocre condo. It’s unfortunate a lot of the new buildings are just average. The city is looking good in spring. So when are you buying a house on E. Deshler?

    Oops, meant tear down the ‘Flats II’.
