Observation: So today I wiped out and flipped over my handlebars, but I was fine, my bike was fine and it was dumb, so not as fun a story. But the other thing that happened to me multiple times today (and definitely happens from time-to-time) is I got in “the zone”. Sometimes I will be riding and just get lost in thought and/or focused on simply biking, and I will totally forget about the art element of ELM. Today this happened three times, and I road past pieces of art or graffiti each time, so had to circle back. Occasionally I’m not even sure if I missed something, but to be fair to the goals of the project, I retrace my route just to make sure. You would think after re-riding 2-3 miles, you would never forget again, but alas, the mind has a mind of its own sometimes.
Distance: 31.34 miles
D-Fact: 2014 was the 313th birthday of the 313 (that’s Detroit’s area code)
