Random Blurbs: Urban Adventures

MotoADVR_SpeedmasterDoorThis past week has been ridiculous; my wife has been traveling for work, which typically leaves me with more time to write, but the past week has pretty much been me commuting from work, then home to take care of my dogs, then to one commitment after another. I guess you don’t realize how easy things are with two people until you try accomplishing it with just one.

DCIM100GOPROAt any rate, when she was gone last Sunday I ran a few errands on the bike. With nowhere particular to go, and no particular time to be there, I decided to tool around downtown and snap some photos with the GoPro. I’ve mentioned before that Dayton actually has a rich history, but things have changed a lot after the ‘08-‘09 market crash. While there has been a lot of recovery throughout the city, there are still many areas that have “fallen by the wayside” to say the least. Naturally, those locations tend to draw the attention of my camera.

DCIM100GOPROAt the same time, there are many historic districts around the city, many of which are excellent representations of beautiful architecture, and what Dayton once looked like. While the Oregon district is probably one of the more well-known areas downtown, the Huffman Historic district also has many beautiful rehabbed homes, and honestly I think Anne’s Hill is probably my favorite (Dutiot St.)

As of the time of writing this, I as planning on being on my first Iron-butt ride, however weather and life has pushed back the schedule at least twice now. That’s still on my Bucket List of items I want to get done this year, hopefully I’ll still manage to sneak it in before it gets too late, and then I can fill you in on the details. In the meantime, please enjoy a few photos from last weekend.

  1. I’d be happy to accompany your SaddleSore 1000 attempt; it isn’t too bad with a little planning. I did my first one in 20.5 hours, 1,079 miles, and was in bed by 2:30am from a 6am start. OH-PA has many good opportunities to map a nice SS1000.

    • I’ve been fighting to get it done this summer after delaying it last year. This year has also been busy so it’s getting kicked down the road again. I’m hoping to get on 1015 miles in around 18 hours… but we’ll see, I’m losing daylight with every day that goes by.
