Thorn Sherpa (again), Keen Cycling Sandals and a Nice May Day

Went for a 28 mile ride today on the Thorn Sherpa. Took some pictures. Tested out my new Keen SPD cycling sandals and new pedals. The sandals are great. Early this morning I dropped a couch on my foot, crushed my big toe, ripped my toenail and even with that, the Keens were comfortable and perfect. The toe’s feeling better. I would put up a picture of it but I don’t want to gross anyone out.

I've added Planet Bike Cascadia fenders (mudguards), Tubus Logo rear rack and Shimano M-324 peadals.

I challenged this guy to a race. He won.

Keen Cycling Sandals. Love these things. They deserve an entry all to themselves but I'm too lazy. I ended up wearing them to a wedding today. Seriously.

Nice scenery.

Wilmigton's riverfront. USS North Carolina

Flowers (I have no idea what kind) from the Farmer's Market.

Stopped by Longleaf Bicycles.

Abandoned rail line. Maybe one day trains will occupy the space again.

5 spokes:

Where is that old rail line?

It's downtown Wilmington. The bridge in the picture is North 6th St. and I was standing on the new (relatively new) bridge on North 5th. At some point, I had heard or read about the powers that be wanting to have train service from Wilmington to Raleigh, but I think those plans fell through. Personally, I think it would be a great idea.
