I used to live in Charlestown Indiana. It’s not that far. They have a cool pizza place. Tim and I decided to do a road ride there and enjoy some food and beer.
On a Friday in July, I took the day off work. After running some errands, I met up with Tim at Quill’s coffee to get the day started.
This was a road ride, so I was on the rSogn. Tim was on his Lightspeed.
We took the Big-4 bridge across to Indiana. Riding this thing is absurd. There’s nearly always huge crowds of pedestrians. I’d say “screw it” and take the Second Street Bridge, but the I-65 realignment and bridge project is going to turn that bridge into a high-speed exit ramp. Bleh.
Once across, the ride up to Utica is pleasant and rather flat. Being along the river tends to do that.
There’s a gradual climb up Waterline Rd. We took Highway 62 into Charlestown and enjoyed our tasty treat.
We took part of my old 11-mile loop north of town then headed down hilly Bethany Rd and back to Waterline, and back the way we came.
It was a nice 58 miles for the day.
