Northside to Riverside

Saturday marked my first group ride in the Fall for 2010.  I hit the streets of Richmond on my own last weekend and put in 27 good miles.  Not the same with friends though. I met up with Grant and Landon (The Brothers Brick) at 8am and we were two wheels rolling not 15 minutes later.  Headed east from the Northside the first half of our ride was all parts of Richmond I had never seen before.

Fascinating that 28 years of life in this city still brings me to places I have never seen before. Of note was the Oakwood Cemeteries confederate grave site which for some reason I didn't even know existed.  Heading out of the East End and into Shockoe Bottom we crossed the river into familiar territory for the rest of the ride. Ending the ride at just under two hours and just under 25 miles.

Our post ride meal was brunch at Bill's Barbecue.  A weird place to go at 10:45am, but still as tasty as always. Landon had never eaten there before and was impressed and Grant got a lemonade refill that tasted like it was made with box wine.  Yum!  The rest is in the pictures.
