Tour de Bluffs

Yesterday I took the new road bike on a tour of Council Bluffs. Wanted to show the bike were it will be riding lots. (Maybe the bike can then help me get home at times.)

The first stop was the Indian Creek Bridge. This is a common rest stop, and conversation stop. Just before hammering up Indian Creek Trail (or battling the wind).

From there, on over to the Western Historic Trails Center. Here, the bike could learn all about Lewis & Clark and the exploration of the Missouri River.

Then, on over the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge (the Bob Bridge) to Omaha. Turned around at the Lewis & Clark Landing.

A regular stop on the "Tour" is Big Lake. The city parks has done some great work on this lake.

Finally, I stopped in at Jennie Edmundson Hospital to visit with the Cardiac Rehab and Advanced Wound Center. Sorry, the bike had to stay locked to a rack while at the hospital.

Finished up the rode up Harry Langdon, past the Mall of the Bluffs, back to Xtreme Wheels. Just short of 30 miles. Was a good ride.
