Last Sunday evening, the bike club and many of the bike commuting community in Ft Wayne area met downtown for the Christmas lights ride. It was a 16 mile ride that weaved through downtown, then out to Franke Park for the Festival of Lights drive. Unfortunately, my camera battery again died before we got out there. The cold seems to quickly drain what little life remains in it.
It was fun taking to the streets, being a part of a large, courteous mass of bikers.
This is the Santa that has adorned the side of the old Fort Wayne National Bank (now PNC) building since it was built in 1970. Before that, it was in storage for many years in a barn north of town.
Jump ahead to today, Christmas day. This is the much-anticipated trainer Santa brought me.
And this is the Big Oak Bikes Fitness Center. It's located right next door to the Big Oak Bike Shop.
I also got a new jersey. I tested it today in 43 degree weather. Very warm for this time of year, and sunny, too. The jersey worked great, with a long-sleeved undershirt and a light windvest on top.
I hope all of you had a great and peaceful Christmas Day.
