Charlestown Pizza Ride

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.
