Errandonnee: Riding to lots of Brick buildings

Saturday was just a little too chilly to go for a group ride, so it was errandonnee time. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized I went to a bunch of brick buildings.

This was a reconnaissance mission. I headed downtown to the courthouse to see what kind of (bike) parking is available. None. I have to go to jury duty on Tuesday. I suspected it would be bike unfriendly, so I got a beater bike ready. I got a picture since there are no phones allowed on Tuesday and found out there’s no bike parking.

Category: Non-store errand
Destination: Columbia County Courthouse
Bike: Trek 930 hardtail Singletrack ( beater) with slicks.
Observation: No bike parking at the courthouse.
Miles: 2.1

On to the next brick building. I stopped by the health food store for junk food. Dairy free sweets. Every woman needs chocolate and my stash was dwindling.
