SnR UGRR Tour 2011 ~ July 10 Ride Day 25
Leaving Dr. Cousins
The Youth Cyclists were well rested today. Ready to get on the road and finish this journey. As we were moving out to leave it was, for me, like leaving my “cousins” (no pun intended) home after a family visit.
As required, the adults road off early to get coffee. Dr. Cousins got on her bike for the first time in quite a while and showed us the way. At least she says its been a while. She powered ahead of us all!
With the coffee chore done we headed back to prepare the cyclists for the day. They were all ready to pack the van, laughing and joking with each other. Another family moment.
When all was packed and nothing left but the goodbye’s we headed over to the future site of Oberlin’s Underground Railroad Interpretive Center. It will be housed in a converted granary. Something that suits its purpose well due to its round shape.
After the goodbyes to the wonderful Dr. Olivia Cousins we headed off again. Winding our way through the Oberlin bike trails to surface streets on to county roads. Eventually landing up at Woodside Lake Park. A great family stopover where there’s swimming a game room and lots of people who stay for the summer. The people who run the park were great. They allowed us to sleep under the pavilion in the event it rained.
Let’s Move Outside!
