Biking with dad!

Took a ride Friday morning with my dad on the Olentangy Bike Trail.  I wasn't sure what we were getting into.  He hasn't really ridden much, he's up there in age, and it was going to be hot. However, since the trail is mostly covered by trees, and it is paved, we thought what the hell, let's see what we get into.  We got onto the trail by 7:30 and started our trip.
It took awhile for the heat to get too bad, so we actually made some good progress.  After cruising about 8 miles, with some awesome scenery, we realized we were close to the Ohio State University.  Since I have never been, we decided to keep going and check out the stadium (the horseshoe).  Good call!

Took some more pics.......

Then saw this sweet bridge...

Then took this pic of dad posing in front of sweet bridge....

Then completed trip back with nice 10 mile roll back up the trail.  Little slower, but still a nice ride.
Passed this awesome fishing lake on the way back, stopped and took a few more pics!

Sweet lake along the way
All in, 20 miles, nice ride and great time spent with dad!   Looking forward to our next adventure!
