We had spectacular weather on this first day of the Memorial Day weekend. For a change of pace I went to Westerville for my ride. It also the advantage that I didn’t have to travel through the north side fix. I parked at a Brooksedge Blvd. office building where I once worked.
I opened the back hatch of my car and added air to the back tire of my bike. Then I went to do the same to the front one but it wasn’t to be found. Seems I left that one at home. Oops. I actually stood there and looked for the front wheel as if there were multiple places it could be. I didn’t want to go back home, get it and come back. Traffic had been heavy and I think every knucklehead in the state was on the road. (Including me.) I decided to go across the street to Bike Source to lo0k at a bike I have been thinking about for about six months. They didn’t have the one I was interested in but they had one of the same design but wasn’t carbon. I took that out for a ride for about a half hour. It was very nice. While I was out they realized they had a carbon one so when I got back I took that one out. It was a much better bike so I took it further.
I’ve been on this bike trail multiple times but I’ll swear I’ve never seen this “depot” before.
Westerville Bike Depot
Magnet school in Westerville, very old building.
Went into uptown Westerville.
Then I went over to Otterbein University.
At this point I was starting to get concerned that the bike store would report their bike as stolen so I decided to head back.
I have no idea how far I rode but it was a lot further than I thought I would go when I discovered that I only had one wheel.
