I have been wanting to go further on the path and decided this week was the time to stretch my journeys on the path. My goal today: ride from Tyrone area all the way up town to Tropicana Field. According to Google maps my journey will take 7.4 miles and all of it is on the city-wide bike path. OK, let's go!
Oops, haven't even got on the path yet and discovered I have forgotten my water bottle. Tough it out, Mike and keep focused.
This looks to be an old railroad depot (the path used to be railroad) that has been transformed into the St. Petersburg Clay Company. They have structures along the yard area with some of their work.
Question: I passed this quarry and they are watering their rocks and gravel. Anyone know why?
An area next to Gibbs High School where the original rails still sit. Unfortunately there was no drinking fountain.
Success. After a nice ride I reached the Trop.
For those who may be interested it took me approximately 42 minutes to go 7.62 miles, and I expended 382 calories which I more than gained back when I spied a Klondike Bar in the fridge.
