Bike Ride – September 24, 2016

It was another pretty warm day for late September.  It was overcast most of the day so that made it a little more comfortable.

Started at Tuttle Park and headed south on the Olentangy Bike Trail then got off at Ohio Stadium.  I took Cannon Drive to King Avenue then east to Neil Avenue.  Neil Avenue is so nice through Victorian Village.  This is at Fourth Street. Someone planted a garden between the building and the street.

Next I went over to Goodale Park.  This is a statue of Lincoln Goodale, benefactor of the park.

Across Park Street from the park is a building that I had never paid much attention to previously.  I was asking a woman if she knew what it was and she didn’t.  It turned out to be the Pizutti Museum.

Pizzuti Museum

There are a number of sculptures around it and I mentioned to the woman that one of them looked like a guy peeing.  If you look on the left side of the museum you can see it.

When I got closer I realized that was exactly what it was.

South on Park Street.  Looking south on Park towards downtown.  You can see how overcast it was.  I was sure I was going to get rained on but it stayed dry.

Just north of East Town Street was Franklin Avenue.  It’s a quiet residential street that I liked.

Headed back towards High Street via East Gay Street.  These are some condos.  Gay Street is becoming a trendy area.
