More Adventures that came from the Ride on the River

Yesterday Dennis and I did some bike riding along the Greeneway in North Augusta.

Turns out, as I suspected, that the Greeneway goes all the way to I-20.  I knew we had passed a parking lot along the North frontage road between Exit 1 and Exit 5 (SC side) on one of our Miata Club road trips.  Sure enough, Dennis and I parked at that spot, and rode our bikes under I-20 all the way down to the 15th street bridge and back.  It was a long ride (since I hadn’t ridden in a while) but fairly flat (don’t get me wrong there were some hills, but few) and mostly tree covered.

So once again we enjoyed another morning doing something we discovered as a result of the river boat ride on the Savannah River.

I want to thank Jackie Nicholls for organizing that Savannah River boat ride – especially since it was such a nice evening and a good time spent with the Miata club.  But also because Dennis and I have discovered many more things about Augusta and North Augusta as a direct result of that trip.   Thank you Jackie!
