October 30th was the last time I rode a bike, until this morning. That's the longest stretch I've gone without riding for many, many years. One reason is that I've been working a part time job on weekends. That's taken up much of my free time. I worked a 12 hour shift yesterday and was sound asleep by 8 PM last night. After having a nice breakfast with my wife this morning I had no choice but to get out and ride.
Beard Update: I think I've hit a plateau. I've been growing this thing for a few weeks now but it just doesn't seem to be filling in too well.
I decided to visit a portion of east Fort Worth on my ride today. The east side of Fort Worth is the rough part of town. I wouldn't suggest riding east of I-35 in Fort Worth unless you know where you are going. This is E. Vickery Blvd. heading up to I-35. There was very little traffic in this area other than a few crackheads and homeless people on foot.
The silver colored metal covering this portion of the building is interesting but is in need of some serious cleaning.
Mr. Redman started restoring and building pipe organs while a student at SMU in 1956. He started this business in1966. Apparently there is still a market out there for pipe organs.
Starbucks at the Omni Hotel. I stopped for a cup of coffee, but unfortunately there was no bike parking. I locked my bike to one of the chairs while I went inside to order.
