It is not too often that I have made planned to ride my bike to lunch. I have walked downtown to lunch a few times in the past. I started eating in the cafeteria this school semester to make bike commuting easier. No eating breakfast at home and trying to get a ride to a fast food joint with friends this time around. During this time of year on campus the cafeteria is closed because there are no students on campus, so it is a good time to ride downtown and eat at a local restaurant.
Today I rode my bike to Our Daily Bread and had the three scoop salad. After lunch I decided to ride north and check out the train museum and that is when i found the treat for the day, an old train and an active train.

I rode up a few blocks and turned left down a dirt road that leads to the river Walk trail. Not bad for a lunch loop, a little street, some dirt and some paved trail riding all close to work.
