Commuting and goofing off on the mountain bike

So, I took a different bus than usual just to get out of town. I'm still really tired from all the riding yesterday, but figured that a little jaunt up Antioch to Johnson Drive and to Turkey Creek Trail would be a nice ride home. About 6 miles worth.

I got some in-motion pictures of the MTB, and then decided to ride on some old abandoned train tracks (a siding track for an abandoned warehouse) because I thought it might be a shortcut between two parking lots I'd otherwise need to ride around. It was a blighted double dead-end track that took me out into a big ravine near two main RR tracks, and I had to walk through a bit of viny thick stuff to get out again. Goofing off on this stretch of old track was kind of fun, but not worth the hassle. I won't do it again, and it didn't lead to where I thought it would.

It was kind of fun doing a little distance on the MTB today, but wearing the sweaty backpack made it less enjoyable.

Shortcuts don't work out very often do they?

I don't know, I think I got a heck of a work out from this shortcut ;)

This looks like an awesome adventure, even if the train tracks didn't really take you anywhere. I'm glad you explored them anyway. I've been meaning to ride my old mountain bike to check out some unpaved roads where I don't really want to take the road bike. One of these days, I will.
