I made arrangements to meet up with Chandra at the train station this morning. The plan was to ride on over and see what was happening at the 25th Annual Main Street Arts Festival in downtown Fort Worth. We had originally intended to do an S24O this weekend but things fell through.
I was running late so I took a few shortcuts as I headed from home to the train station.
This pulled up behind me as I was waiting for the light to change at Cantey and 8th.
Just before we left the train station we saw this Apache coming in for a landing. Of course we then had to search it out to get a look.
I'm not sure what it was doing here. It's possible they were getting ready to roll it into the convention center.
Having the corral available made for a pleasant visit. Last year I walked my bike through the crowds.
Fort Worth aka Panther City
I don't know who they were but they played a nice rendition of Tumbling Tumbleweeds.
After taking in the sights at the festival we headed south to Spiral Diner. Chandra is a vegetarian so this is the first place that came to mind.
I had a portabello quesadilla. Since this is a vegan restaraunt there was no cheese in the thing but whatever the substitute was, it was tasty.
Chandra rode back to the train station on his new Rohloff equipped Thorn Nomad. This is a serious touring bike. The placement of the front brake behind the fork was something that I hadn't seen before. I suppose its to prevent interference from the panniers.
