    Took a little ride at lunchtime today. Close to work on the old I&M Canal. Most of this area has been turned into bicycle trails, but there's still a little gravel for those of us with motors on our bikes.

    When they built this bridge, this old road wasn't needed anymore.

    Time to head back to work.

    Nice way to spend a lunch hour. 5 minutes from work, and it won't be there much longer. Thanks for reading. Tomorrow is an all day safety class with no time to ride at lunch. Today was good though.
