Today was more of a celebration ride into Missoula than a high-mileage day. I came into town from the south, crossing over the Bitterroot River and into town. All sorts of people were out, tons of them on bikes, and it being a Wednesday, they have “Lunch at the Park.” There were bands, food vendors and probably 2,000 people. Apparently this goes on every Wed during the summer.
I had a great lunch, cruised the downtown area, then went to a place I have wanted to visit – the Adventure Cycling Association Headquarters. They are a great resource for all the things I have done with cycling over the years. The building is a former church and as they have added wings they have kept the open beam architecture.
