I did something I've never done on a ride before, I wore jeans. I wore the removable padded liner from a pair of mountain bike short under my jeans which made for a comfortable ride.
I rode through the TCU campus rather than take the Trinity Trails.
I took a break near a building on Cantey Street that I believe is the TCU art department.
That baby head is kind of freaky!
I thought this was a stencil of Obama when I was riding toward the sign. I don't know who that is, maybe Henry Rollins? My wife thinks that it looks like the Janitor from Scrubs.
Riding on Cantey crossing 8th Avenue.
There are lots of nice old wood frame houses being remodeled in this area south of Magnolia Avenue.
Here's a fixer upper.
I arrived at Spiral Diner and discovered that the place was packed full. I didn't want to wait that long for a cup of coffee so I left. I walked next door to Panther City Bicycles and bought a t shirt. This is a new business just across the street.
This place caught my eye as I was riding north on Jennings towards downtown.
Riding under Interstate 30 on Jennings.
The view of downtown north of IH-30.
I settled for a cup of coffee from the Starbucks at Sundance Square. We seriously need some new coffee houses in Fort Worth.

I came across this nice Bridgestone XO-1 while riding through Trinity park on my way home.
My last break near the Trinity River before arriving at my house.
