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.

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.

I went further south then east on Town Street and stopped at the Topiary Garden to eat.

Just east of the Topiary Garden is the Kelton House.

They were getting ready for a wedding so I didn’t explore much.

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.
