So this morning's commute was peppered with a little scouting action to see if there was a good place to sit in the shade and enjoy a manly little picnic with friends (I've included the word "manly" there because I anticipate a lot of arm wrestling, growing beards and peeing while standing up).
Anyway, I found a great spot. It's an abandoned gravel road that's completely grown up at the beginning and end of the road, with a few small clearings that are great to sit and relax. You have to forge your way through lots of tall grass and weeds. But you don't have to get off the bike at all to do so. And all that overgrowth offers coverage and privacy (for all the peeing standing up). I suppose I'll be back there for lunch today.
Get out there.
